Fridays on the Couch

Well it's that time again - Tour de France. I'm as excited as Voeckler when he realises the camera is on him. I can't concentrate, work is just not getting me going. If you're feeling the same, warm your cogs with a few good reads etc.

THE Best Tour de France Analysis in the one place
Nic O'Donnell writes his TDF analysis every year as well as for the Classics and the Tour Down Under. I think this has to be up there with one of his best because it seems he's not missed anyone. He's covered all the chancers and strong riders, even if they don't get their own heading - e.g. Quintana over Valverde. Imbibe here

Tour de Lounge - not just a great name
I couldn't help but be inspired reading about Lyle Swann. That he's taking part for charity challenge Tour de Lounge is even more inspiring. My favourite quote from Lyle's wife "He'll never stop riding, he's either going to die on his bike or in the garden, he certainly won't die in bed."

Yuki Arashiro
It's an oldie but a goodie - a quick little quirky read from @cyclingiq. Yuki lines up again for TDF 2013.

The injured life of a pro cyclist
This is so not TDF related but this is an insightful little read into cyclists and injuries. But that it's about champion rider Ina Yoko Teutenberg is even more insightful. Hope she recovers fast. Sounds horrible - cycling makes her sick :(

I'm sure to find some more good vids and other reads as the Tour unfolds.
