blue squirrel

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... [anonymous comments are lame, cowboy up and put a name or start a blog]

give me freedom or give me death, oops, wrong day....
so it is to be the traditional french french french day at the tour, as in bastille day, as in a frenchman is usually afforded the opportunity to win a stage. it could happen, but my gut tells me otherwise with so many teams hurting and astana not firing on all fronts, it could be a day to take some ground. or christophe moreau could win. now the french teams and or riders do have a good chance to score some points tomorrow, but for some reason i think a GC contender is going to pluck a win, take some yellow and or just earn some time. my humble advise to evans [my perennial underdog] and levi [my perennial american underdog podium hopeful], kick vino while he's down, cause if he recovers, he will be a mad dog on a mission to eat up everything that is not in kazak blue [everyone's thinking it, i'm just saying that on a good day klöden is smarter and thus faster at the end of a tour]. so where does that leave me, in a funk to pick some podium finishers. but i guess i will go with

stage 7 [sorry i missed stage 6, but come on it was only a sprinter stage]

1] christophe moreau [he is wearing the national colors after all and this may be the last day for an actual climbing stage win for him before rasmussen gets kicking]
2] chris 'i copied jim's hairstyle' horner [well, cause i like his style, he dislikes french teams, and this too may be his last chance at a breakaway climbing finish win, before he has to work for evans]
3] jérôme pineau [well, he's french and he kicks my ass up mountains]

reserves: ivan parra, iban mayo [don't laugh, he's still better than you, he's obviously off the 'vitamins'], stefan schumacher [just kidding, he doesn't stand a chance, even if he is wearing blue], so my last reserve is felix cardenas.

crap is paolo savoldelli in this race? it's a decent finish after a steep climb... oh, i was going to mention that i whopping masiguy's picks arse, but he didn't mention me so i am not going to mention him [come on, your a big fat 6'4 sprinter and you don't even pick boonen for the last bunch stage before the alps? just joshing ya bro, love ya, especially when your a huge big wind block in front of me and your always in front of me], but i will mention BK, she's nice.

ok that's it, my arm hurts and i have to get up and get my ass handed to me by the juniors on our team.

[do i look fat in these bibs?]

    Hey dude. Thanks for the mention. We agree on one rider today, but well, what are you going to do. There are a lot to choose from!
    Keep it up
    Peace Out
