    Default La Course (Beware, here be spoilers)

    Was anyone as excited as I was watching La Course yesterday? I can't remember the last time I saw the Champs Elysees that drenched in rain. Lots of heartbreak and crashes (not so fun), but what an impressive move by Van der Breggen. A real nail biter to the bitter end.

    I suppose you're right. The crash-fest was definitely not easy to watch, but seeing the full end of the women's race on a EuroSport feed without it being cut to watch Froome drink champagne was good.

    I loved that it got some coverage, but I was really bummed the conditions were so sketchy. Those are some seriously tough bike racers. I know I don't have the guts to race that course in the rain.

    Great race. The roads looked treacherous.

    VDB's solo attack with ~5k to go was super impressive. Having PVP on her team, in the chasing group, certainly helped her chances of staying away -- but still, fantastic commitment and effort to hold a gap right to the line.

    We were there, next to the 1k to go banner. POURED rain and pretty chilly during the women's race. There was definitely a coordinated chasing effort, but she was all business. Crowd was super supportive & vocal. Great day at the races!
