Apart from family, what could be more important than wine and bikes? Of course, there might be the odd rant about other topics on here too...

French success at the Giro

Apparently, Le Mevel's win today is the first Giro stage win for a French rider since Laurent Jalabert won at Lumezzane in1999.

It's also Le Mevel's first pro victory, having made his pro debut in 2001. According to VeloNews, a year later, his career was put on hold after a crash in the Four Days of Dunkirk severed his sciatic nerve. Bravo Christophe!
