MY TDF GOING WELL.....

I thought that you would like to know that my TDF is going well......


I am managing to hang on in there each day and have managed to complete the first four stages without any major mishap.....although I did manage to knock over a bottle of beer during the sprint for the finish of stage two. 
I blame Mark Cavendish for this.....seeing him just clinch the win caused me to indulge in a lot of arm waving and jumping up and down and the result was 'one bottle over'.. I had to drink an extra bottle just to get over the stress of it all. 


Not so good today for Cav though. 
He got caught up in a crash which had him hit the deck. Luckily he wasn't too badly hurt but it did put him out of the running for the sprint finish and stage win... 
All this just stressed me out yet again so I had to have yet more extra bottles just to help me recover...... 


I'm not going to write any more today as the TDF highlights are just about to start and I need to see it all over again........

I hope the bottle was still capped at the time. If not, I trust you were sure and swift.

I hope that was a good drink. I am simply amazed at your unflagging enthusiasm for the sport, mate!

At this rate you will be about a stone heavier should Cav make it to Paris with all that beer

I am trying to offset the effect of all the beer Mark, with some stiffer hill climbing during my early morning rides...

Trevor, what is the name of you're beverage that helps you to stay properly hydrated during these tuff stages?

Last year I watched it all. This year I have been TV and internet challenged the last three weeks. I plan on catching a couple upcoming stages. Ashame about the sacrificed beverage. It has been said back in my drinking days I could be fallen down drunk and not spill a drop.

Thanks for the post!

My favourite beverage believe it or not, is Crabbie's Black Label Reserve Alcholic Ginger Beer....I know.... I know...but this stuff tastes great and is 6%vol.
