2010 Tour de France – Rest Day Report

Like many I’m sure, I’ve been taking advantage of today’s rest day to catch-up on all the things I might have been doing over the past 9 days.


So in lieu of an official report from me , I thought I would leave you with this great Rest Day report from The Inner Ring.


And for the podcast fans among you, I just finished recording a podcast with Bicycling Magazine–so head to their site in the next few hours to give it a listen.  (Unless you don’t want my real voice to ruin the one you’ve given me in your head.)


Any predictions for tomorrow?  Share them as comments below.

About Whit

My experiences might easily fit many cycling fans' definitions of “living the dream.” Since getting hooked on the sport watching Lance Armstrong win the 1993 U.S. Pro Championship, I've raced as an amateur on Belgian cobbles, traveled Europe to help build a European pro team, and piloted that team from Malaysia to Mont Ventoux. As a former assistant director sportif with Mercury-Viatel, I've also seen the less dreamy side of the sport – the side rife with broken contracts, infighting, and positive dope tests. These days, I live with my lovely wife in Pennsylvania and share my experiences and views on the sport at Bicycling Magazine, the Embrocation Cycling Journal, and at my own site, Pavé.

    I was just going through the upcoming stages thinking of which ones Lance might target for a stage win (which I think is inevitable), and the stage to Mende will be relatively high profile stage due to the difficulty and finish on Mont Jalabert, and the next day to Revel, where Lance got cocky and let Outshokov(?) beat him in a two-up sprint in 95.

      I think Mende is a good pick, ML. Maybe the next day too! Would be great to see him at least get a win before the race is over. He might have fared better in the press if he had made that his goal in the first place.
