Bastille Day

It’s only just gone noon (UK time), but I see that Richard Virenque has already led the Tour over the top of three hills as he begins to rack up the points in the King of the Mountains competition.

All I can say right now is that it would be splendid if he won the stage and finished the day in the polka-dot jersey.

UPDATE [Just past 3pm]: Yes, Virenque’s still on the attack, has been first to the top of all nine summits today, and looks set for the stage win. (And the live coverage of the Tour de France is proving much more gripping than the unfolding of the Butler saga…)
