It’s that time of year, again. The Tour starts on Saturday.
While it’s a completely open tour this year I imagine most people’s money would be on either Evans or Valverde. On paper, no one else really has a chance. But since neither has actually won a tour you can’t really say that either of them will deal with the pressure all the way to Paris without a mistake. In fact, the Tour must be in Valverde’s head a bit by now, since he’s never ridden it sans mishap of some sort. He’s got the most talent, for sure. But talent isn’t everything.
Day 90 came and went. Even though I’ve got another training block coming up I should probably do a fit test, huh?
