TdF Stage 13

I have read that the other racers call Heinrich Haussler "Barbie" for his attention to fashion and grooming. Crying as he won today's stage probably won't help that image, although a 195 km break ahead of the cold, whimpering peloton should earn him some respect. After he took a painful-to-watch second place at Milano-San Remo and another second at De Ronde, today's result isn't a surprise. Looking at Haussler's pro results prior to the start of the Tour shows how he has been steadily marching down the top ten over the past few years:
