The Team's Time Trial in Montpellier, Languedoc
Monpellier, where the TTT takes place today, is a cultural center of the Languedoc, the southwest region of France that has its own language. It is also heavily influenced by Spanish culture, and so today, as a mini preview of our Barcelona pairings, try some Montpellier tapas with a big glass of Domaine Peyre Rose Coteaux du Languedoc Syrah Leone. This will also pair well with roasted meats, so try the fabulous bistec of the Camargue region.
Go Astana, go! Lance and Columbia Highroad blew us away yesterday. Today is sure to be the same! What a Tour! And it's only stage 4! (On a wardrobial note, though, I am running out of yellow things to wear. Donations?)
