It was mayhem at the finish of today's stage in San Martino di Castrozza, but I managed to get a few pictures just after the finish, and I nabbed a front-row seat at the press conference.

Michael Rogers was furious after crossing the line.  When he reached the Columbia soigneurs, he threw his helmet and sunglasses on the ground and said, "Fuck!"  Then I heard him say something about having crashed.  I didn't see the end of the race on tv, so I'm not sure what happened with him, but it apparently was not good.
