Stage 6

Today is practically a break day in the Tour. Vinokourov, one of the favorites to win the race, had a bad fall yesterday and will be sore for awhile. He lost more than a minute in the overall standings, but it's still early in the race. Tomorrow has the first Category 1 climb, but the worst, the "uncategorized" are yet to come in the Alps and Pyrenees. It's going to be a rough weekend for all.

Speaking of weekends, I'm doing an extra day next weekend which means I'll be doing a 3 day weekend for 3 weeks in a row. Sounds like not-so-much, but believe me, it's not easy. Perspective? No climbs.
