For example, last night as the S.O. and I watched the DVR'd stage 4, the team time trial, we noticed the bits of cotton stuck up the riders noses as they warmed up. I had to know immediately what this was. A quick google search and voila! This blog let me know what it was. It's cotton soaked an inhalant decongestant. Thanks new blog I shall stalk!
I also had to study the history of Corsica because I love geography and history
Then today as I was perusing facebook, I saw my that friend Casey "liked" a page called "Bangable Dudes in Pro Cycling." This cracked me up and I had to learn more about it. I am constantly commenting about which dude on Le Tour is cute. I'm sure that the S.O. enjoys my commentary. Anyway, the facebook page comes from a site created by a woman named Kelly Minx Riordan. Here's the site. You're welcome ladies. And here's an article she wrote for this year's tour picks. The innuendo's alone in this one will make you laugh and she's made some astute picks. (Which is more than I can say for my fantasy tour team. Womp womp.)
I am also of course, intrigued by this devil guy who is at Le Tour almost every year. He'd certainly make me ride faster if I saw him.
Have a great Fourth of July everyone. Stay safe and as the French say, "bonne chance" if you are racing!
