The Team Time Trial is the closest thing your find to the Gladiator V the Lion in our modern culture, so sit back and enjoy the video!
I set my P.B's over 10 miles- 22.18 and 57.38 for 25 miles using a Mavic disc rear wheel!
An intriguing insight into the fitness of the Tour rider.

Today I visited Local Sports physio for treatment on my injured calf.
I've been getting quite frustrated with how long the injury has taken to heel.
After a full investigation by Sarah it seem the the muscle fibers have not knitted back correctly due to my lack of stretching after runs!
She did some very painful friction massage [ I made the mistake of telling her that I had a very high pain threshold, silly me!] to break down the scar tissue and instructed a course of stretching for the calf muscles.
Full recovery may take up to 4 weeks, oh well plenty of time to watch the Tour De France then :0]
