Dutch rider Annemiek Van Vleuten crashed on the descent with less than seven miles remaining in the 85-mile road race. While the course was different from the one we illustrated as being difficult-to-dangerous, much of it did follow the men’s course.
This year’s Tour de France competitors may face a unique obstruction as they contend with the grueling course through the Pyrenees Mountains: llamas. On July 2, a herd of roughly 20 was spotted in repose on the Col de Tourmalet race course. And llamas, I think we can safely surmise, do not give a fuck about the Tour…

What did you do this weekend? I went out one night, I stayed in one night, I watched all of Season 2 of Portlandia, made some peach cobbler, and even had an impromptu dance party at a colleague's house.
