Au Revoir France
The Tour de France is over. In the next few days I shall miss the excitment of the daily long races and chases throughout the beautiful country of France. Hat's off to the champion, Cadel Evans of Australia. He kept his powder dry all the way through the 2,000 miles race until he climbed up slowly in the ratings, and took the yellow jersey on the penultimate day by winning the time trial. Congratulations too to Mark Cavendish the "Manx Missile" sprinter.
