The premier epic cycling event, the Tour de France, is set to begin on June 30th in Leige, Belgium, but it won’t include last year’s winner Andy Schleck. As reported by the New York Times, Schleck has suffered a fracture in his lower spine, and has had to withdraw from the race. Schleck was awarded the win in last year’s Tour after Alberto Contador was stripped of his title for failing a drug test. http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/2012/06/13/sports/cycling/13reuters-cycling-tour-schleck.html?ref=global&gwh=37D882C8E7FEC21292D6408CFDF5FE24
