Injured: Hamilton's back

Today we've heard comments about Tyler Hamilton's bruised back and observations he has been struggling a bit at times to hang with the peleton. It seems hard to assess what this means, although it seems certain from last year's evidence Tyler will not retire due to injury.

Tomorrow is a rest day, and undoubtedly Tyler will be getting his back worked on.

Tyler seems like a real threat to escape on longer, harder days, when and if he reaches for that invisible, extra gear. Now that he is an acknowledged threat, will he get the chance to show us?
