Cycling can be a beautiful sport, but let’s face it, sometimes it can get downright ugly. Garmin’s Dan Martin is, under most conditions, not a bad-looking guy, but his face during the Stage 11 time trial looks like an Orc from the Lord of the Rings. His race data shows he averaged more than 28 miles per hour over the 21 mile time trial. That’s good enough reason for such a grimace.
Tony Martin, not to be confused with Dan above, won the stage.
