Dave's Dogmatic Dribbles - Tour de France - Stage 10
Today is a rest day of sorts and one of opportunity for others.
An escape of six lasted about 35 km. Later, Burghardt leaves the peloton behind. Maybe he is performing scout duties looking for stray dogs. When he gives the all clear, 10 other riders join him in the escape. After a 14 minute lead, their advantage begins to fall.
(Yawn) Excuse me, I?m feeling a little sleepy. The alarm sounds as Voigt has decided its attack time. He, Halgand, Casar, Albasini and Vasseur eventually make their attack stick and leave five others behind. It seems like V oigt is doing most of the work. He should since he started it in the first place.
The in fighting with the lead group has begun as they near the finish. Vasseur is sitting on everyone?s wheel. It?s a wide open road and Vasseur shoots by next to the barrier and wins. The French are happy! This will probably be the closest they come to winning the Tour.
The non racing peloton is soon to arrive. Maybe Zabel will win this sprint. Well, that didn?t happen. I just have to keep trying to get something right. Maybe tomorrow the peloton will be more concerned about what happens during the stage. Time for my nap,
