TDF 2007 Stage 1

As the cyclists wend their way through the English countryside on Sunday from London to Canterbury the lush greenery was a joy to see. David Millar did an excellent ride to gain the King of the Mountain jersey. Robbie McEwen performed spectacularly with his come from behind finish due to a crash. But along the picturesque scenery there was a 1900 steam engine stopped along the route. The engineer blowing the whistle as the peloton rode by. Phil Ligget stated the engine predated the first Tour de France by three years. The chortle came from my son, "Ah the preferred method of winning the Tour."

I wait patiently for the arbitration hearing ruling on Floyd Landis. I prefer the "correct" outcome over a speedy answer.
