after a self-imposed 20 year absence from cycling, the sport i love, i am back and dedicated to holding my own in the superfast 40+ catagory. this blog will tell the journey, the highs and the lows, the team [team becher+] and it's cast of characters, our sponsors, supporters, and other local riders that make it happen...

todays stage was beautiful, beautiful in so many ways. rasmussen's riding was that of a true Maillot jaune was so beautiful. the accelerations on the Col dAubisque [hors categorie] were beautiful. the way levi leipheimer fought with everything he had, all the way up the dAubisque was beautiful. the way sastre gave it one last shot today to try and move up the rankings was beautiful. the way mauricio soler took the polka dots jersey by the horns and rode like a true climbing champion. cadel evans effort was one of pure grit and so beautiful to watch. but truly the feeling i had this morning while following the stage, the feeling that the tour was again something special, something personal, something i alone was excited about, that feeling of being 14 again and watching the tour on ABC sports, once again the tour is beautiful and no one else knows.

    Racerbluesquirrel, I'm so sorry about your boy. Sure, it's not exactly a testament to his geographical awareness that he can't tell the difference between Mexico and Italy, but this is a total farce. When Contador puts that jersey in Paris, we'll all remember who really ought to be wearing it!
