Cyclist vs. bug at Tour

Tour de France contender Frank Schleck made an unwelcome friend during Sunday’s team time trial.

The Leopard-Trek rider was stung inside his mouth by a bee or a wasp early in the stage.

He told The Associated Press on Monday that he initially “panicked”
before remembering previous similar experiences that helped calm him.

He also hit a camera during the ride, cutting his nose. Fun day.
