Natural Break?

Just watching the first day of the Tour de France and they showed a guy pulling off the side of the road for a "natural break." Umm, ok, nice euphemism, I guess. But the thing that surprised me is that they actually stopped. I'm used to seeing Ironman Triathletes just hang it off the side of the seat as they hit a straight spot in the road. I guess that's the advantage of having teammates in the Tour de France - they can help you catch back up.

And congrats to Chris Horner, our own Homeboy from Bend, OR, on finishing the first day in 9th place - just six seconds off the lead.
