This is good stuff! This is good news for a rainy afternoon with no outdoor skating likely on this day, with a2a.net 87 miles of skating less than 9 days away. I'll be slower than the oldest people out there, I'm sure! Some of those dudes are fast! But I am looking forward to it.

Some say this makes Lance Armstrong more likely to show up, some say less, and he seems to want some assurances from the organizers about respectful treatment or some such. </p> <p> Meanwhile Contador sounded welcoming at first, but lately perhaps less so, and Vino's name has surfaced as well. Nothing solid here from me...just some impressions. </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <div class="street-address"> Avenue des Champs-Elysées </div> <span class="locality">Paris</span> <span class="postal-code">75008</span> <div class="country-name">France</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="48.869801">48° 52' 11.2836" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="2.307586">2° 18' 27.3096" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.fr/?q=Avenue+des+Champs-Elys%C3%A9es%2C+Paris%2C+75008%2C+fr" target="_blank">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://roadskater.net/dopers-testers-tests-lance-armstong-tour-de-france-vuelta-giro-garmin-chipotle" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/dopers-testers-tests-lance-armstong-tour-de-france-vuelta-giro-garmin-chipotle#comments Roadskater.net 2008 2009 United States of America (USA) blood cheating cycling doping France (FRA) Giro d'Italia Italy (ITA) pro cycling tours roadcycling Spain (ESP) (España) testing Tour de France (tdf) urine Vuelta Ciclista a España http://roadskater.net/crss/node/869 48.869801 2.307586 Fri, 24 Oct 2008 04:40:27 +0000 roadskater 869 at http://roadskater.net Staying Cool: Temperature Management Ideas from the Tour de France http://roadskater.net/staying-cool-temperature-management-ideas-tour-de-france <p> Good stuff <a href="http://www.velonews.com/article/80922/how-garmin-chipotle-keeps-its-riders-fresh-for-the-tour" title="How Garmin-Chipotle keeps its riders fresh for the tour">from Velonews</a> about Team Garmin-Chipotle and how Dr. Allen Lim improved performance and recovery by keeping the riders cool: </p> <blockquote> <p> The team believes dealing with heat is more than just an issue of comfort. </p></blockquote><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/staying-cool-temperature-management-ideas-tour-de-france" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/staying-cool-temperature-management-ideas-tour-de-france#comments Exercise 2008 ice cooling cycling France (FRA) pro cycling tours roadcyling physiology http://roadskater.net/crss/node/807 Tue, 12 Aug 2008 07:32:04 +0000 timv 807 at http://roadskater.net 100 Police on Rollerblades (Inline Skates) Guard Olympic Torch Relay in Paris http://roadskater.net/100-police-rollerblades-inline-skates-guard-olympic-torch-relay-paris <p>OK it's not too important, but I'm always fascinated by any mention of the inline skating police in Paris. This seems a not so wonderful way to catch criminals, so I guess their duty is limited to situations where they're just a helpful resource. Only in movies where the thiefs run straight down a sidewalk or road conveniently would the skates be that great for the chase. However, being included in any honor guard that includes motorbikes and firefighters is pretty nice. We're on a thin schedule of reinforcement, we skaters!</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="48.858503">48° 51' 30.6108" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="2.294362">2° 17' 39.7032" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=48.858503+2.294362+%28%2C+%2C+%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
