Some photos from the TdF:

1) Millar dropped his chain toward the end of the prologue. Also happened to be right in front if me.

10) The last 700 meters, at 12 percent grade, are a killer to get to the top of the Galibier. But the view is worth it.

11) And, of course, the Spot girls. A Tour wouldn't be a Tour without the caravan. (And pole dancers.)

More, including the Alpe d'Huez and Ventoux, to come later, when the film cameras come back on disc.

FWIW,
Mike

is that you on the Serotta? if not, did you end up with the Trek, Softride, C-40, Seven, Litespeed, Calfee, Merlin or the CT1? or did you break down and get all of them? I forget which one(s) you wanted.
if that is you (looks like it), hope the back is treating you well!!
