Phew, no blog required today, but like the pro’s I’ll craft a gentle one so there is no chance of my fingers going into rest mode.
I guess two things cycling but not tour related hit the rest day. Lance Armstrong’s attempt to get his USADA persecution overturned by the courts failed, followed later by the news that the non cyclists, the doctors and helpers had all taken their life bans. Must admit the latter point worries me. Have the thrown the towel in because they haven’t the money to fight, or because they are guilty?
It wouldn’t be a rest day without a doper getting chucked off, so well done whoever you are.
Battle resumes tomorrow. The media is already questioning if Wiggo will choke it due to nerves. Olympic champions aren’t chokers.
