Sure, it’s an off day for the Tour de France but that is no reason to go nuts. You’re sitting there at the computer searching through all the options I showed you here and all you find are reruns. Before you start screaming and posting gibberish to your Facebook site about how the French are part of an “Axis of Evil”, put your coffee down and remember that everyone needs a break on occasion. Well, not the incredible athletes of le Tour, no, it’s you who needs a break. The French understand this.
To put it in Americanese, It’s halftime, the seventh inning stretch, a bye-week. But it’s only a day and tomorrow the excitement starts all over.
At ArkansasOutside.com we strive to help you with the withdrawal by providing a tiny bit of local racing to watch. So sit back, watch a little of the Summer crit series below with a view from the front fork and then check out some of the photos from the Star-Spangled Classic Criterium Championship. The,n if you get a chance today, go out for a ride, attack a hill, do a quick sprint on an empty road and as you head to your finish pick an imaginary line and throw your arms up over your head if you have that skill. Tomorrow it’s back to the professionals.
