TDF 2009 Stage 5 = Velo Voekler

One of the names I truly wanted to see on the team listings was that of Thomas Voekler, that spunky kid who wore the yellow jersey for 10 days, until Armstrong decided to make his move and take it away. I like this kid; he works hard, won’t quit, and he’s a great young hope for the French riders. I like to see this guy do well and win a stage. Congrats to Voekler.

Trivia
Are you following anyone from Team Versus on Twitter? I’m following Paul Sherwin.

Notes of a consummate tourist
So close to the border, a large percentage of the population of Perpignan is of Spanish descent. While there are a lot of rocky beaches along the coast, this area boasts wide sandy beaches. The usual vestiges of history from Roman and the Middle Ages are to be found, the usual cathedrals, etc. etc. etc. Well, actually, go there during the summer and enjoy the lively nightlife, beaches and wine.
