2012 #tdf133 Stage 7 and Stage 8

Has taken me quite a while to choose the winners for the past two stages. Lots of umming and aaahing, and Bradley'ing. I didn't mean to choose winners for both stages that were short, it just happened that way, but so many came close.... Anyway, keep hanging in there if you haven't yet won a stage. Heaps more days to come!

Here 'tis:

Stage 8 


1:13am via HootSuite
Stage Food: started with a broken carrot, and finished with a nice Pinot

Honourable mentions:

A brave but not yet fully-ripened vintage of Pinot uncorked in Porrentruy today. Expect this bouquet to develop full flavor soon.

Mad Marc Madiot motivates Pinot panache into Porrentruy! FDJ love-in overshadows GC gang uncomfortable downhill hang-out.#tdf133

Olympic gold and polka dot dreams for Samu gone / Whilst Thibaut win sends Madiot to mad DS home

Stage 8 brought to u by guts: gutsy frog snags stage, gutsy Cadel gives Wiggo plenty of guts, Sanchez spills his guts. Guts are go!

Stage 7:

Froome goes vroom, Wiggens embiggens and Evans is perfectly cromulent.

Twas pain on la Planche w/upsets galore, no cracking for Cuddles as Froome said, "Right, Sky's the limit for me today"& gifted gold#tdf133

Sky rockets up the mountain, leaving the Peloton in cinders; Froome vrooms to victory – but Brad's parade, he hinders? #TdF133

Finalement! Le Tour dans les mountains!/Le peloton-all over le shop/Brad finit happy en yellow/Et Froome prend le stage et les spots#tdf133

#TDF133 Like the 7 hills of Sheffield Le Tour got serious today. "Jerseys on at Sky like diamonds" Here Oui'go Here Oui'go Here Oui'go

Pro cyclist Jeremy Roy should have entered this tweet about the stage, but didn't, so this was translated via @cycletard to unofficially enter him in the unofficial pro cyclist #tdf133 comp!:

Curves of climb of pretty girls were too pronounced. Less than ideal measurements. I dropped prematurely.
