    A couple of years ago during the TdF there was a two-man break that had been away for hours. They rode into the finishing town together and as they passed under the flamme rouge, they shook hands, said bon chance, and then duked it out for the win.

    Even though this was during Lancemania, this is the moment that hooked me for a lifetime.

    maybe a dumb question but where are they getting these huge bottles. I assume it is in the feed zone but since they dont fit in cages do they drink them right away and chuck them?

    Yeah - for a while I thought that maybe he had taken a spill and that was a bandage, but now I've seen the ... uh, light.... Or something.

    That one Menchov's got went the way most do - dumped onto his head. The riders seem to trust cans of coke though.

    Hand-ups from the crowds, picked up, passed around, and ditched quickly.

    It happens in auto racing (if you call it a sport) all the time.

    I call it a sport, mainly because I've experienced it.

    My lifetime fan moment was late in the 2006 Giro. Jens Voigt was in a long break with a Spanish rider, mountain finish, Basso on CSC in the maglia rosa. Voigt ordered not to work on the last climb, but to do the wheelsucker sprint for the stage win. Voigt rolls up to his companion, speaks, pats the guy's back...and sits up in the last kilometer. No one shows grit and class like Jens.

    That and the enigma through suffering.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces
