Prologue Underway

Live Coverage from my Sofa

The last three men to start today’s prologue are Lance Armstrong, Fabian Cancellara and Alberto Contador. The rain has ceased in Rotterdam. More than half of the riders have finished the five-mile time trial. Tony Martin holds the lead with a time of about ten minutes and ten seconds. What excitement in the city. The Dutch have a lot to celebrate: making it into the final four at the World Cup and now the Tour de France. What I would give to be in The Netherlands today!

Blood, Sweat and Tears

The wet roads of Rotterdam took their toll on Mathias Frank who crashed in this morning’s time trial.  Aie!

More soon.
