tour trivia

The winner of today's stage, Juan Mauricio Soler H., is wearing number 219 -- the highest number in the tour. The first two digits represent his wild-card team, and the last digit is his position on the team. Ordinarily the team of last year's winner gets to ride with bib numbers 1 through 9, and the 21st (wild-card) team rides with numbers 201 through 209. But with the controversy over Landis' performance last year not yet resolved there is no defending team this year, and the team numbers start one higher than usual.
