it was actaully a motor cycle with a cameraman on the back.lance Armstong went into and over it, and crashed, and then chased back onto the lead group.

Lance did crash after getting bumped by a cameraman, rumored to be one of the guys shooting a documentary on him. However, the 15-man crash was caused by a team car and one of that team's cyclists bumping each other. There are more details on that crash in the separate story on Andy Jacques-Maynes published Tuesday.
