As an indication of today’s excitement levels, the highlight of Stage 3 of the Tour, Granville to Angers 223.5 kms occurs when Fabian Cancellara devours a Mini-Twix after 109 kms.
Tommy Voeckler breaks clear of the peloton. Even The Wattmeister could manage that today.
Switched from Eurosport to Channel 4 at 15:22.
Switched back to Eurosport at 15:24. Turned sound off. Miss Sean Kelly, (meaning regret not hearing his voice, NOT a young female person named Sean Kelly).
Do not miss Carlton Kirby quite so much.
The normally irksome adverts have been a great source of amusement. Check out the meerkat voiceover for comparethemarket.com and tell me it is not Peter Sagan.
Meanwhile incarceration in The Wattmobile has been a steep learning curve. The effects of eating cassoulet in a confined space result in a phenomenon which scientists (or scientologists) call ‘heavy air’.
Only eighteen stages to go. God I love Mark Cavendish….he reminds me of me.
