This is the second or third year the Tour Downunder has played this ad during the Tour De France broadcast :

I find it very amusing. (spectacular footage nevertheless)


As I have done for years I watch The Tour every night, 10 Pm till 1:30 -2 AM...
Again I see several guys cycling at a different speed, the French term for it is "deux vitesse"
(look up 'deux Vitesse Bassons")
Anyway last night Froome's ride reminded me very much of the Eddy Merckx , Viranque and Pantani's climb of the same mountain...
time will tell.

I still remember when Tom Simpson died up there in 1967, one of the earliest memories I have of the sport.
