    Interesting chart for this year's TdF

    http://junkcharts.typepad.com/junk_charts/bumps_chart/

    This is an interesting graphic way to follow standings in the tour.

    Geez...what crap. Some statistics/calc geek had nothing better to do and you effectively fried my brain by posting a link I couldn't resist clicking.

    As the guy himself acknowledges, he doesn't know much about cycling. To take the most obvious example, tracking the position of the yellow jersey in the GC is entirely uninformative since by definition, the yellow jersey is always the leader of the GC.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    Chart themselves not much, but the point of the whole thing is to illustrate different ways of presenting data in chart form.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
    Stay calm and bring a towel.
