It’s a bit long for a crit course, but it was fun watching the boys have at it on the Champs-Elysées today. Great to see Ekimov hold the flag for us old guys, leading the peloton in, and even greater to see him bust a move there at the end to try to set up Popovich. I love watching the guys ride the gutter, looking for that little edge of smooth concrete. That’s bike racing, for sure. And, oh yeah, Floyd won the Tour.
