Sunny But Less Than Ideal

Stage one of Paris Nice is in the books, which means there's seven more to go. Unfortunately I'm not here to report on the fun as I promised yesterday. I suppose that's relative though. The fun is that we didn't lose all hopes of the overall because we had Bob, Fabio, and Laurent in the first group; plus there's a lot of racing to do yet. Nonetheless, a very ill-timed/placed crash that blocked the entire road (easy to do on a small French road) with 20km to go caused havoc for the rest of us. Most of us only lost time, while Danilo has a little road rash, some bumps, and a nice cut above his lip. We will keep fighting for what we can!
