Ironmen

Voeckler getting measured for Ironman status.



In between watching this excellent Tour and selling our Galstudio products at the Vancouver Folkfest I'm finding it difficult to blog. I would try and after watching yesterdays amazing stage to Plateau de Beille deserves mention via the Dutchman, Lauren ten Dam.


Ten Dam grisly hero


I saw his fall crashing down at high speed and landing on his face. Amazing. He tweeted... no fractures.

He will start todays stage to Montpellier... utterly an Ironman performance.

And high praise has to go to two men riding brilliantly: Thomas Voeckler and Jelle Vanendert.

Vanendert is turning out to become a feisty grimpeur winning on top of the Plateau de Beille. And, Voeckler for his feisty riding and staying in contention... now for podium.



Vanendert on his way for his first Tour stage win.

That photo of Ten Dam is one for the history books.

Definitely, the most gruesome... and heroic image of the Tour in a long time!
