|From Graham Watson site: The peloton was taking it so easy, the early break had time to stop at a coffee shop for an espresso and then still catch up. This is funny and shows the difference in attitude between the Giro and the Tour.

|I am reading a great TdF history book right now that has some amazing goings on in the Peloton. One of the funnier was the practices of riders would be swooping in on a Cafe and cleaining out the goods.
The owner would then bill the Tour.

|I love those photoes. Stopping at a coffee shop sounds like one of my rides. Nothing like an espresso at the 90km mark to give you a boost - afterall - caffeine is OK in low doses!|

|interesting, this. note the difference in shoulder widths, handlebars, height, frame size, etc.
no surprise which one excels at what.
btw, what's Cipo doing with his left hand?
