Is this the Flying Forehead’s Year?

July 8th, 2007 · No Comments

I draw this quote from the Tour de France for the rest of us blog:

VINO IN THE CATBIRD SEAT. It seems to me that Alexandre Vinokourov . . . put himself in the catbird seat with his 7th-place finish today. The rest of the best will be chasing for more than a week just to try to make up the time gap he opened over them. It will be Vinokourov’s race to lose.

If this long-time lone ranger can discipline himself to work with his very talented Astana team, he should win the race. If he impulsively “goes off,” as he typically does, the podium in Paris is wide open.”

Affectionately nicknamed the “Flying Forehead” by Cycling Insight’s Bazzman and Hutch, this could be the Year of the Forehead.
