That boy's suitcase of courage should be called a shipping container!
There must have been the bandages of hurtiness that got him over the line. That and the foundation of friendship and tenacity of teammates within the livery of Lampre



don't forget the parabola of mystery :cool:

From Jules website
Another cool highlight of Alpe d' Huez will be my 35min or so of video footage I managed to capture on the way up. I had the bright idea of using a bit of Kiwi ingenuity and taping my video camera to my spare helmet. At the bottom of Alpe ' Huez, I swapped helmets and rode up wearing my 'helmet cam' Julz-style. I ran out of HD space just inside the final km but that didn't matter. I'd managed to get in the 'Dutch Corner', which is always good for a laugh.

If he was on a trek that might've explained it, the 3rd choice in groupset is not gonna make any difference! :lol:

Red does weigh in under 2kg though...

being on Mavic wheels does mean he probably needed EPO to overcome their short comings..


:D

Predictions for tonight?

I would say sprinter teams pull in all breakaways and contest a conventional sprint finish.

The high pace made for a dangerous time in the peloton. Alexandre Botcharov (Crédit Agricole), Philippe Gilbert (Française des Jeux) and Damiano Cunego (Lampre) crashed on a straight piece of road. Cunego took the longest to get rolling again as he received medical attention for a bloodied chin.

It's a miracle I finished this stage," said the Lampre rider, who came over the finish line with blood dripping from a wound under his chin and injuries to his chest and thorax.

The former Giro d'Italia champion suffered his third crash of this year's race when his wheels got caught in a rut in the road early on the 196.5km ride from Bourg d'Oisans in the Alps to St. Etienne.
