Le Tour-Finale

Now that the maillot jaune is also out of the race, there isn’t much more to say. In my humble opinion, the race should be cancelled before it reaches Paris. Scratch this year, and don’t hold another professional race until improvements have been made. The problems cannot be fixed, but progress can be made; and until the riders, the UCI, sponsors, race directors, team owners, media, and other governing bodies get it sorted out, then there should be no racing. Le Tour’s race director thinks stopping the race would be an “insult”. I disagree. So what if the fans are deprived and the economics of the sport are damaged. What could be worse than the current situation when no one knows who is clean and who is not?

 On a related note–I told a friend that I get aggravated when I’m on a ride and  people yell, “Hey Lance Armstrong!” That is lame. My friend told me he got the same thing recently from a couple of golfers sitting in their cart, as he rode by a course. So, he quietly turned around, rode back, and heckled them when one of them hit a miserable tee shot. He yelled, “Way to go Tiger!”

Livingston Family firefighters. 🔥 👩‍🚒 🚒 When @trailrunningmom “smoked” the obstacle course AND added some push-ups for good measure, the Chief pulled out his business card and made a pitch for her to join the squad. I thought I was the competitive one, but she can turn anything into a competition! The kids had a blast too at family day.
From race directing to @thecubscouts directing. Proud day for our son, @trailrunningmom and the rest of #cubscouts Pack 157 Den 5 as they earned their Arrow of Light. Four of her boys are moving to @boyscoutsofamerica #scoutsbsa after five years of fun and learning.
