Yesterday, for the first time in 21 years, a stage in the Tour de France was won by a Portuguese, local boy Sérgio Paulinho. He is one of the most faithful domestiques of Lance Armstrong. After his boss blew his chances of another Tour podium finish he could show his own talents and won the stage to Gap.
Today, three of my regular saturday morning cycling buddies, Sérgio, Helder and Júlio are departing to Germany for the monstrous challenge that is the Challenge-Roth, an Ironman distance triathlon. Boa sorte para vocês!!! Some people think that my trip may be crazy but you are WAY more crazy ;-)
