when i hit that hard part of the hill on my last ride i found myself thinking of tomas vocler and envisioned his face with that great look of determination & suffering and used it as inspiration to get over that hill. a few weeks ago i had never even heard of tommie vocler. for me he was the real winner of the tdf. altho i was happy for caddell who was heroic and had worked so hard for it over the years. all of the big and not so big names were great and fun to watch. but for me it was little tommie vockler whose face is on the 2011 tdf.
