Chris Froome out of the Tour de France! 3 crashes in two days proves to be too much for him. Can’t wait to hear what Brailsford has to say at the end of this stage.

With this ride I now have ridden 133.2 miles in 3 days and 218.8 miles for the last 6 days. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.

Without even knowing it, I made my first top ten overall and age group number one Strava segment today. It was a flat segment not a downhill so quit laughing you guys. Do you like my Klaus Nomi Lego avatar?

We did a little bike ride today. The last ten miles really killed our average speed.

A Miscellany of Le Tour de France - Day 80
1993 One of the Tour’s most recognisable faces in recent times is the infamous Red Devil, also known as Didi Senff and complete with trident.
He was inspired into costume by the German cycling announcer Herbert Watterot, who called the last lap of local criterium races The Red Devil’s Lap.
The peleton either love or loathe him and he uses his pitchfork to defend himself against water bottles thrown at him during the race.
He is also an acclaimed bicycle inventor and in the Guinness Book of Records for building ‘the world’s largest bicycle in the shape of a guitar’.
Every day until the Grand Depart, we’ll be sharing 100 stories from the last 100 years, a design per day until the greatest show on earth begins. You can see the full set of stories, and purchase postcards and prints, at www.thehandmadecyclist.com

I loathe the guy but I would much rather have all the Borat swimsuit dudes eliminated from the TdF spectator areas than the Red Devil.
