Take the day off

During every Tour de France since 2000, I have a taken a day off work, invited some guys I ride with over, have coffee and donuts and watch one of the pivotal mountain stages live. Kind of a tradition.

Today was that day and I could not have picked a better stage.

Finally, Levi attacked, not once, but a number of times. Not for his own glory, but for Contador. Disco played their team card well, but Rasmussen proved to be the strongest climber at the Tour. Maybe they shouldn't have let him go on the first day on the Alps??

5 hours of live cycling. The GC 1, 2, 3 and 4, alone on the last climb- attacking. Great, great cycling.
