"That's what's funny about the sprinters, they struggle to get over a motorway bridge but when you have to elbow your way to the front and get up to 75km/h for the sprint, they're up for it."
-- Florent Brard of Team Cofidis talking about the Tour de France sprinting feats of Mark Cavendish
Sounds familiar. I feel a little better now, that it took me some huffing and pedaling to keep up some kind of speed over the Cape Cod Rail Trail's bridge over Route 6 between Harwich and Brewster, Mass.
even though not even in the same universe of cycling, it's reassuring to know that the sprinters are not immune to gravity either.
