I've been watching (not for the past few days.....out in CO celebrating my daughter passing her cardiology specialty boards) Was glued to stage 1. Know the Yorkshire Dales very well.....even used it as a class profile last week.

I was a bit sad for Cav seeing as Harrogate is his mum's home town but it has to be said.....it's not the first time that his rowdy riding has precipitated a crash. It's just the first time he's come off badly.

We were alternating between watching this and the World Cup. Dh couldn't help but comment on how you didn't see Cav crying when he fell and wanting to walk home. I countered with the contrast in sports where a bloke gets back on his bike vs. one where it's the norm to take a dive to the floor and writhe in *agony* following a tap that a frail 95 yo with a Zimmer frame wouldn't even notice.

Will be back in Golden for Stage 7 of the Pro Cycling Challenge http://www.usaprocyclingchallenge.com/stages/2014/stage-7 Hello class members .... another chance to spank Lookout Mountain
