Brotherton's Tour moment
Stuart O'Grady
Stuart O'Grady of Credit Agricole
Throughout the Tour de France Simon Brotherton is providing daily race reports for BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC World Service - he is also giving Sport Online his Tour moment of the day.

Today's highlight was provided by the local beef producers. They made a presentation to the best placed French team before the stage start in Limoges.

The Credit Agricole riders were presented with 800lb of prime beef for their efforts so far.

So while they may not have anyone capable of winning the Tour de France, at least they won't go hungry.
