Up Up and Away... Pez has been interviewing Greg LeMond lately, and he said something that surprised me. He said that he hated the rest days, they interrupted the rhythm of the race and he didn't necessarily feel like resting. I've always assumed that riders in the middle of an incredibly grueling three-week race wouldn't mind a breather, and in fact it would improve the racing the day before and after, knowing a rest was coming. Apparently it helps to ride the Tour to understand how it works. Who knew?
Anyway, the difficulty of yesterday and tomorrow makes me think that today might be a great day to attack. OTOH, what the hell do I know... Enjoy! [Oh, and we probably will need a new thread at 250 comments today. Don't be surprised.]
