Sylvan Chavenel never looks pretty on a bike. He always has this grimace of deep suffering on his face when the real racing begins. But the joy he had today taking the yellow again probably makes up for all those grimaces…

My wife pointed out that Thomas Voeckler looks like McFly today. I’ll never look at him the same.

Quote of the Tour so far: James Huang’s caption from a photo of the mullet-shorn Vladimir Karpets, “Yes, it’s true: Vladimir Karpets (Katusha) is now all business.” Classic.

Have a nice weekend. I’m getting in a good ride tomorrow…
