Happy Easter

This afternoon I've been watching S17 of the 2006 TdF. It became clear how much of Floyd's lead that day was the responsibility of the peloton. First they've worn out Pereiro's helpers, and then still nobody wanted to chase. Only until the peloton was more than 9 minutes behind Landis, they picked up the pace. As for Floyd's power output on Col de Joux Plane, the last hill before Morzine with an 8%+ average grade, the camera got a glimpse of Floyd's PowerTap: 367 watts and 20.5 mpH. I can do this too ... downhills. But what an incredible ride it was. Thanks Floyd!
