The Tour de France - Floyd Redux!

So maybe Floyd does read this blog after all - because today he launched a magnificent, powerful, magisterial come-back by following precisely the advice I have been offering him all week. He put the hammer down on his rivals and won not just the stage, but the huge psychological advantage of proving just how effectively he can strategise his race. It's still a close thing of course - and this does not in any way belittle the other leaders of the general classification. But today's effort was a marvellous sporting moment, and he has every reason to think that he can pull back the extra time he needs during Saturday's time trial. Email me if you need further help Floyd, but the advice will be 'Eyes down, deep breath, then give it all you've got for fifty-seven kilometers.'
