Ventoux may not have shuffled the deck the way we all thought it might, but what a stage. From the crosswind split in the peloton before the climb started to the repeated Schleck attacks and an unshakable Armstrong, it confirmed the right feet will be standing on the podium in Paris.
LA and others will have new bikes for the Champs-Élysées, and no doubt plenty of perfect new white bar tape. To celebrate the final day I wanted to show off my own bar tape signature. To my knowledge this is a first. Perfect Fi'zi:k tape on the lens hood of my 200mm. You can buy neoprene sleeves for big glass in white, black and camo patterns, but this is so much better, PRO even.
The idea came to me in Boulder, much to the delight of the back shop at University Bicycles, where I did the first wrap. Does anyone think I can get Fi'zi:k to sponsor me? New tape for every big race.
