TdF Rolleurs

Ya ever wonder what motivates those riders who break away at the beginning of every stage of the Tour de France. They are riding their own race within the race. And some are simply crazy Frenchmen snatching a moment of glory as they roll through their hometowns. As would I.  An explanation.

Lance will still snatch his moment of glory. He's playing possum. He's been waiting till either tomorrow morning or Thurs. to do it. Mark it down.

I would grant him one last moment of glory. I don't think he has it in him. Mark it down.

Gunnar Berg said...

Second thought, you may be right. Who would have the cojones to nip him at the line?

I don't know which stage it'll be. He might lose another 6 minutes tomorrow, or win it. But when he goes, he's gonna go.

I don't have any fancy anodized parts to trade. just sayin. If he doesn't win a stage I bet he'll come respectably close.

I can't say this on other forums cause they have large numbers of unbalanced hotheads.

Are you implying that I'm NOT AN UNBALANCED HOTHEAD ?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Or that I don't really have a dog in this fight and I'm just enjoying the process? I hope he can go out in a blaze of glory. I just haven't seen any evidence that his body is up to it.

Well, he went. Without drugs and wearing them damned old legs.
