With three days until Le Tour, riders are warming up on the roads they’ll be racing in the coming weeks. Alberto Contador, winner of the 2009 Tour de France, was doing some recon today on the cobblestones of Belgium– the same ones he will stutter over next week in Stage 5. He tweeted this photo of himself dropping his teammates during practice #egoboost!
In previous Tours, he’s been a bit of a weeny on the stones. But that’s understandable for a guy so light and airy. The shakes on those cobbles are like the vibrations from those old-fashioned jiggle weight-loss machines! Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
