I'm not all that into watching sports on TV, but I haven't missed a Tour de France since I started following it years ago with my Number One Son, a cyclist. I've posted lots of bike pics here (the pink track bike was a big hit with my readers), so of course I'm going to crow about my boy George Hincapie taking the yellow jersey yesterday. I'm not sure he's quite ready, yet, to win the Tour, but watching him in the time trials the other day and then seeing yesterday's brilliant little sprint (way to stay awake, George!) was a treat. Can't wait to see him in the mountains.
Note to Tristan: Haven't I been telling you for the last couple of years? Huh?
By the way, all you writers should click on the "George" link, above, because it includes some clever stuff (alas, not written by yours truly) comparing the dangers of cycling to writing books.
