"Tuesday's (7/6) column by George Vecsey in the NYT--yes, you can get it here in Cleveland where I am--describes his riding in a car ahead of the racers, but, seemingly, not as part of the caravan. Then...

""It was now time to actually observe cycling being committed.""

Isn't that great writing?

"Great? A split infinitive AND a misplaced ""actually"" in the space of ten words?

Richard, Richard . . . .

Pedantically yours in pedalling,

"Another ringer by Vecsey in today's paper:

""But short of tossing chickens or ball bearings in Armstrong's way as eccentric new ground rules, the Tour could not stop the charismatic Texan from taking over the leader's yellow jersey.""
