“Hope” is the thing with feathers,
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops ... at all

After following the big race for last place in the 2008 Tour de France for three weeks, I neglected to post the final results. Our boy, WimVansevenant, riding for Silence-Lotto, did in fact eke out last place, a full one minute behind a determined Bernard Eisel, riding for Team Columbia. A third consecutive Red Lantern for our man from Belgium! My congratulations to Wim in this, his last TdF. He is us.
