After ten days of intense competition, today is le rest day at le Tour. Riders enjoyed the day “off” by sleeping late, eating big and riding a little. It’s important to keep the legs “alive.” See, even on a rest day, there’s no escaping the chamois.
For fans, the rest day is a good time to pay attention to loved ones ignored since the Tour began on July 5. My advice: make a nice dinner for your Tour lover. Better yet, eat out and keep the kitchen clean!
On Wednesday, the Tour continues from the “balcony of the Pyrenees” in Lannemezan to the medieval castles of Foix. Aussie Cadel Evans will start stage eleven in the leader’s yellow jersey. How much longer will he wear it? Wait and see.
