Old habits don't die

I don't snore, my wife backs me up!

Well, we all know what happened in today's crash marred stage 9 Issoire-Saint-Flour. In a word it was... HORRIBLE!

The ghastly images are forever emblazoned in my memory and with careful introspection I choose not to show in this post. So, without further ado I would like to wish the tired riders a very pleasant rest day tomorrow and may I present the lighter and happier moments of todays stage...

I'm not a big fan of the riders wearing baseball caps. This is the Tour.
Here's how cycling caps should be worn old style by classy Danny Pate!
