C’est Le Tour

06 Jul

A true photo finish in stage four.

Following yesterday’s dramatic photo finish in stage four of the Tour de France, came “crash day” in today’s stage five, an aptly reported day of carnage, ten times over to be exact.  Two more riders are now out altogether, while defending champion Alberto Contador picked himself up, literally threw aside his damaged bike for an immediate replacement, and continued on his way, slightly bloodied and kit-ripped.  Too bad for him he couldn’t catch today’s winner, Mark Cavendish, who emerged victorious in another suspenseful stage finish.

All things considered, for better and for worse, as it’s been said and will be said again:  “C’est le tour.”

Grab new bike, wipe blood (or not), and get going!
