Mellow Johhnny
cycling: On a more positive note, Lance is back in Yellow after a spectacular finish in the Alps at Grenoble. Jans Voight, the guy wearing the Yellow Jersey was 2:18 ahead on Sunday. Yesterday Lance finished about 31mins ahead of him - all of that in the last 18km climb to Grenoble... That's what mountain riding can do. USPS I mean Team Discovery, at the head of the peloton, rode very, very well and set a huge tempo on the last climb. Sweeping up the breakaway riders, crushing lesser riders and having them trail far below and behind the leaders. I believe he is now about 1 minute over his closest competition again. He didn't win the stage - in second by half a wheel diameter to Alejandro Valverde (Spa) on the Illes Balears team, but he certainly kicked some major ass as all of the pretenders to the throne were dropped one by one. Yesterday was a keeper.

This is the general classification (or overall Tour leaders) after yesterday's stage:

1 Lance Armstrong Discovery Channel 37hours 11mins 04sec
2 Rasmussen 0.38 (behind the leader)
3 Basso 2.40
4 Moreau 2.42
5 Valverde 3.16
6 Leipheimer 3.58
7 Mancebo 4.00
8 Ullrich 4.02
9 Klöden 4.16
10 Landis
11 Botero 5.20


Only 5 hours of coverage today! heheh.

Oh and yesterday before work I rode up the killer twisty road going south from Springbank on Col Talbot to Southdale, West on Southdale, North on Westel Bourne, East again on Byron Baseline and back on the bike path. About 5 challenging hills there in that lot. And it was crazy hot. It's just about 915am now and it is already 27C today!

I am going ride now while the sun is low- even if the temp is not. Got to pass another milestone for the year.

Carpe Diem

I've ridden that same route, and I can practically feel its viciousness in your entry. You've reminded me that I'm due to hit the neighborhood again soon. I've been limiting my longer-distance cycling in recent weeks because of the smog. It does nasty things to my lungs.
