Well I was off today after an awesome and fun Tour of Lawrence and what better way to enjoy it the watching the Le Tour De France all day, which I might add has been crazy and very entertaining so far, and can only get better from here.
I love seeing guys scrap all day for those one or two points and then see Pierre Rolland come out for the only one that really matters and double his lead, awesome and funny!
Talk about a stud though, this is a true climber and a French hope for a tour contender. Lets not forget that he’s also quite the character as well. From attacking the peloton on the descent when they were waiting for Cadel last year, because Pierre will always go after the win, to making fun of Tommy Voeckler’s form in the drops by mocking him; quite comical if you ask me.
See its not always about the last ten kilometers that make the Tour the Tour, but every little detail of the race that makes it so spectacular. From beautiful scenery to epic duels and unforgettable battles, the Tour is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
Now as for tomorrow… I will be practicing my TT to prepare me for Nationals. The time trial is very important to me because its a good way to get your name out there and to show people the kind of rider you are. They don’t call it the race of truth for nothing.
