Shameless Self-Promotion, Part Deux - More Scribblers At The Tour(6 posts)

Shameless Self-Promotion, Part Deux - More Scribblers At The TourGregory Taylor

Okay, if TeoTeoTeo can (rightfully) toot his own bike horn for his magnificent descriptions of soaring in the mountains on a misty French morning, then I don't feel so self-conscious about hipping you all to, well, a slightly less heroic coverage of the goings on at the Tour de France.

I hope to submit a few more of these before it's all over.

I leave for France in a week. Needless to say, I'm pumped.

I'm going at the end of July. Sadly, I'll miss the Tour, but still, I'm pumped!
I've been reading you on CN. Cheers! I love it. (nm)tempeteOntheRoad

Looking forward to it -- notwithstanding my own "disaster"ms

I took a major spill on my bike on Thursday. I hit a rock on a descent, the road was wet and I fell and slid across the road in the style of the Lion King's exit from the Giro. I have a patch of road rash on my right thigh/butt that is comparable, but probably is larger than Lance's road rash from the Dauphine Libere. My right arm is in a sling and I have to see a sports med doc on Monday or Tuesday (the xrays show a small fracture and my upper arm hurts like hell). My ability to ride the Etape is up in the air, but if there is any way I can do it, I will. Whether I can ride the Etape or not, my bike and I will be flying to Madrid on Thursday night and I will be driving to the Pyrenees on Friday. I can't wait. If there is any lesson to be learned from my experience it is to be careful during your final training runs.

Hope that you can strap it up and get out there with the rest of us on Le Etape. On the other hand, it reminds me to cool it a bit week. No baiting the evil "Lemond Guy" on the Mt. Vernon bike path until I return from France. (Inside reference here -- I managed to ride him to a draw last week on the fixie -- I'm ready for Le Etape!)
I'll do my best to ridems

Although my shoulder still hurts a lot, the pain has been decreasing and my range of motion without increasing the pain is getting better (I'm still typing with my left hand only). However, my road rash is hurting more each day. At least the road rash does not extend to any area that touches my saddle when riding.
