Col du Tourmalet

Andy and Al made the rest of the peloton look like they had tassels at the end of their handle bars and a basket in front. They are so the top 2 riders in this years Tour. And given a chance the sheep could have totally taken them down. Why do the sheep in France look a lot like goats?

Carlos Sastre did a hell of a impression of Jens Voigt today. And I do have to agree with him, the Tour is a bike race, not a bike ride.

Riders that impressed me today (besides the A's):
Sammy Sanchez - I totally thought he was having a heart attack, but he just crashed and had the wind knocked out of him, and then finishes in the 5.
Chris Horner - Jumped all the way into the top 10 in the GC.
Chris is a happy dude. Last year's Tour of California. Just hangin' in the parking lot.

The winner doesn't always have the best salute across the line.
Jens, Jens, Jens, I had to watch this a couple of times. Good stuff.


  1. That is the most awesome interview of Jens. He is funny and tough.

  2. That was funny. How can you not love Jens?!?! I was expecting an f-bomb during that somewhere!
