Does anyone know what the scheduling looks like for the Canal+ flavor of France 2? It's clearly not the same as specified here: http://www.france2.fr/programme-tv. Or perhaps there's a delay from earlier today?

Worse than that. 0.01km = 32.8084ft

bib mousse

So with the high speed of some stages, and potential high temperatures, how does the mousse typically hold up? Am I correct in assuming that well supported riders get both new tires and mousse each day?

A hundredth of a kilometer is more like 33 feet. 5280*.01= 53*.6 ~ 33.

Apologies to those of you in the world not using indecipherable measurements.

I suspect you are right, too small of a unit to be useful.

205'ed, and by faster and more accurate math.

This was already discussed and quoted " ya but if your aunt had balls she would be your uncle"





Stoked Luis made it in.

It's going to be a cold and chilly liaison tomorrow morning. Tough way to start a day...tough way to start day 12 of racing...

Must be getting close to Rally Radio time, I'm looking forward to Lyndons recap of the day
