“My Tour low point… the number of moonies”

July 26, 2005


I just love Robbie McEwen. He is a fighter. And he has a hell of a good sense of humor. Robbie was poised to fight it out for the green jersey on the Champs Elysees. He didn’t get his chance. Thor Hushovd chose to let Vino attack – and squander the chances for a sprint finish. But Robbie doesn’t regret it one bit. When he thought about the low point of the Tour, he lamented about the poor taste of some of the spectators. He stated, “I have never seen so many bare arses in my life.” Well, that’s vintage Robbie. Robbie’s complete interview can be found at the BBC Sports / Cycling site.

With all the “Lance and his place in history” stories, I sure am glad to see a light-hearted story about someone who just loves to ride his bike.
