Four brothers all have worn the yellow jersey, what must that dinner table be like at family gatherings? A few too many glasses of wine and Pascal is challenging everyone to a short time trial to the end of the block and back.

Does Simon look like he is about 50 years old? Man that guy looks old!

I was thinking the same thing. You can see the lines in his face from about 100 feet away. Maybe he's 27 but never used sunscreen? How old is he, anyway?

I think only two have won the yellow jersey. The current Simon (Francois?) is the only one never to have won a stage. Last year, he made a pretty good attempt into his hometown of Troyes, but was chased down by the peloton in the final Ks.

Forget dinner--what is a "friendly" ride around the block like?
