july blog... (highlights)
About 30km into the stage today, Fabian Cancellera (aka: Swiss Bear, Spartacus, Big Baby, Freak…) pulled up beside me, sat up and reached inside the front of his jersey while shouting in his loud cheery way, ‘Millar! I have a present for you!’ This was the conclusion to what had been the most-wacky first 30 kilometres I’ve done in any race..........
......There was no sign of Christian. On leaving the town we were rolling through, there was a big inflatable arch across the road bidding us farewell. As I approached it at now walking pace it began to deflate. Still no sign of Christian…
I increased my speed a little in order to make it through the now half-collapsed arch and came to a stop a couple of hundred metres on the other side and watched in complete awe as riders unclipped and pushed their way through the deflated arch. Just when it seemed the arch was going to completely block the road it started to inflate again. Odd to say the least! ......
.....It was at this point that Fabian pulled up next to me, way more calm than one would expect considering the circumstances and gave me my present. He had been in the mass pile up as well, but behind me, and in all the confusion I hadn’t noticed my Garmin Edge 705 had been knocked off my bike.
Fabian had seen it laying in the middle of the road, and recounted to me how while getting going again he’d seen it and had slammed on his brakes, done a full U-turn ridden back in the opposite direction to everybody and everything and picked it up for me and U-turned once again in the grass next to the road before setting off again. He was very pleased with himself, and I have to admit I was very pleased with him too. I gave the Swiss Bear a big hug while we were still chasing just because I thought it was the loveliest thing!
aint cancellara a sweetie..
