The picture may be fuzzy but not the memory. Turning 61 today put me in a reflective mood. I put replays of Tour de France stages on the shop TV, recalling stages I’d seen in person… in this case, Ventoux from this past year, the stage where Froome, Porte and Mollema ran into the back of a suddenly-stopped official’s motorcycle, wrecking Froome’s bike (causing him to run up the mountain on foot, something never seen before at the Tour de France).
