You can't even enjoy the Tour without mayhem and tragedy. I have to say that the events in Nice on Bastille Day took the wind out of my sails a bit. The sight of Chris Froome running up the hill in the crush of insane spectators didn't help either. That's a perfect storm for trouble. You know it's probably just a matter of time before someone gets seriously hurt.
In spite of it all, things are getting spun. I've got lots of winding off to do with all the little drop spindles.
Better yet, there is plying to be done. I may just get on that podium after all this year. I've even surprised myself.
