TDF + Bus + finishline = Oooops!

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The look on the driver's face was priceless, It was the "I'm sooo fired look"

First stage of professional racing I have ever watched in my life. It did not disappoint.

I was quite entertained how they were trying to inform the teams to sprint early, and then got it out, and changed back to the old plan and then ***spoilers***... my wife had just walked in the door from working night shift (as a nurse) and was like "rewind!!!" we had to wait for them to post the stage as a video rather than live streaming... agony.

Yes, it was Very 41.

They have a new "feature" here on BF with the hashtags thing. I find it useless and irritating, so I'm just cramming hashtags in posts on purpose with not real reason.


that's all. you're not missing anything.
