Monday July 21st
We split up in two groups today. Joe, Steve and I rode out from Lourdes to watch the race towards the beginning. We climbed the Tourmalet in 2001 and decided to not go into the mountains today. Greg, Scott, and Cameron did a big loop from Lourdes via the Tourmalet. Greg rode up Luz-Ardiden and watch the stage from there. The rest of us opted for the TV. Lance Armstrong won the stage after the now famous crash caused by a "Credit Lyonaise" souvenir bag on the way up.
