This week we are currently in is the most boring week of the year. After three weeks of non-stop Tour de France coverage, we slip, without any warning whatsoever, back into the doldrums of loving a sport that doesn’t get any television coverage. When, on Saturday morning, I tune into San Sebastian, it will be via a crappy, low-resolution feed snaked off Steephill.tv.
San Sebastian isn’t exactly my favorite race, but it’s a race and after enduring the post-Tour hangover for nearly a week, I’m ready to take anything resembling a bike race. It even has enough climbs to make it interesting, and enough race motos to keep us biting our nails right to the very end.
So, go get jiggy with the start list, get your picks in, and let’s party.
