New RadioShack rider pulls out of Tour de France

RadioSchack says rider Yaroslav Popovych has pulled out of the Tour de France after failing to shake off a fever.
The Ukrainian picked up a fever on Sunday and he felt worse on Monday's rest day, the team's spokesman Philippe Maertens said by telephone.
RadioShack is down to six riders as Janez Brajkovic of Slovenia and Chris Horner of the U.S. had to abandon after crashes.
German rider Andreas Kloeden was to take the start line for Tuesday's 158-kilometer 10th stage from Aurillac to Carmaux, despite suffering from muscle pains in his lower back.
