Likewise Tim, nice to meet you.

Tim is very modest not to mention he had one of the fine performances of the day. Great job.

Re: EndurRun

Thanks Hezzy! I agree that Stage 5 is a tough way to start. I actually had that in mind in my Sport debut last year and I checked the times of comparable runners from the prior year results so that I could pace myself evenly on laps. But with the course change from 700m of elevation gain in 2012 to ...

Re: 2014 TdF - Telecast

It was quite the exciting stage! Does Contador really have a fractured leg? I missed the part where they gave the reason for him abandoning (other than he had a knee injury that required surgery). Also, they seemed to dispel the earlier belief that he'd been hit by a bike that fell off a team car a...

Lots going on in today's stage. If you are PVRing, be sure to watch the 99K to go through 94K to go, there is something there not to fast-forward through. Thanks for the tip! And I'm going to stay off social media until after I've had a chance to watch the stage so that it's not spoiled. Be sure al...

Agreed. As an avid cyclocrosser, you'll be happy to know this stage made me a Lars Boom fan. Love his name most of all but also how he pulled away from the yellow jersey late with his face covered in mud.

What a fiercely entertaining stage... I usually skip through stuff on PVR but I couldn't today, it was amazing end to end. I am enjoying watching the Tour. As I watch primarily team sports, which are 1 to 3 games a week, it is great to watch something that progresses more quickly than I can keep up...

Defending champ Chris Froome just abandoned his tour. No camera captured the crash but looks to be a fractured arm from a wet road wipeout.

Re: EndurRun

So who all is in?

I see on Strava that Tim is getting good miles in. I see the same for Robin on Twitter. It is going well for me this summer as well.

Who else is in? Singles? Running Mania Relay Team?

I'm still hung-over from the Tour de Suisse and Dauphine! :) Lots of good racing already this year, and on TV no less ... wonderful. I've been watching some of the coverage.

The scientific rigour in running/cycling/lifestyle magazines is generally piss poor, but I don't think one rather poorly written article negates the idea that carrying around extra weight (fat especially) slows a person down.
