After the carnage and drama of stage 10, some nine riders didn't sign-on this morning for a variety of reasons, however, cyclingnews diarist Marcel Wust is determined to overlook his condition and ride on for another stage.

Of the missing riders, it is the Cofidis team which has been hardest hit, including international man of mystery Frank Vandenbroucke who's stayed behind in the hotel this morning along with team-mates Laurent Desbiens and Laurent Lefevre.

Other no-shows include US rider Jonathan Vaughters (CA), as well as Carlos Contreras (Kelme), the Saeco pair of Armin Meier & Dario Pieri, Zoran Klemencic (Vini Caldirola) and Jean-Patrick Nazon (FDJ).

After the previous day's mountainous struggle, this stage will give the lesser riders a chance to shine before the rest day tomorrow. The stage profile is lumpy, but not too tough compared to what is coming up.
