WELL, IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR... FINALLY! The most geeked up, pumped up time of year for riding road bikes is right now because: LeTour.
You don't even have to watch to get caught up in it.
But you will.
Well, I will.
I love it because it kicks off my 6 favorite weeks of the race year. First Le Tour, for all its history and the forthcoming drama.
When Pinault crashed today... man, those frenchies really know how to whoop up the Allislost! sentiments. I don't relish his crash. It sucks, fo sho. But, I do love the overemotions on display.
Soon there will be a Whatthehellishedoing squabble among some team of supertalents. I'm picking Dumoulin on this, which I xpect Primoz (such a cool name it's like a combo of a villain's name and a winner's name) will shut down.
Of course, someone will think Sagan is longinthetooth... only too find out he just keeps getting craftier.
Back to the frenchies... I'm not sure who will be the great frog hope this year? Freakin Alaphillipe last year was so awesome. I've loved that cat since he came over as a tadpole to rip of the ol' ToC. Anyway, who will it be... Julian again... that would be so, dang, fun... he's got all the emotion sans the fatalism.
Teams Colombia look ready to: defend in the form of Bernal, attack in the form of EF, and agitate in the form of Astana... and then there's Senor Numero Segundo Para Siempre aka Nairo. Ya know if he was able to hang around and finally figure it out I think there'd be a lot fans giving him the lovin' he deserves for being so dawgawn dogged.
And what of us, I mean US? Just gimme one day with Neilson or Sepp in a long break for the win... and if together in the break... oh I'd watch that over and over and over.
Back to my claim you won't have to watch it to get caught up in it... every single ride you do for the next 3 weeks will have a whole bunch a geeked up riders who fell asleep the night before watching Le Tour, which they'd already watched in the morning while fauxtending to be on a Zoom call, and they will have visions of glory under their Oakleys.
Just hang on... let 'em pull for glory until there ain't no more... and give 'em the Sagan afterburners for the win.
Then be sure and take a few days off because we all know La Vuelta es lo mejor!
What does lo mejor mean? The best.
What's the best part of PEDALindustries?
