Tour de France 2010, Stage 3

Stage 3: Wanze- Arenburg Porte du Hainault

The Cobblestones. It's amazing to see what damage they can do. Leipheimer, Kloden and Armstrong all had popped wheels due to them. Armstrong ended up losing his 5th place overall and is now almost a minute back of Contador. They were the lucky ones, though. Poor Franck Shleck fell and broke his shoulder. It will require some surgery so he is definitely out of the Tour. Andy had a great day, however, as did Cadel Evans and Alberto Contador all moving up to the head of the GC.
Only the fourth day and already an interesting change to the GC. Exciting Tour this year.

As for my KAL project, Helena is coming along well. Loving the pattern in the skirt. Very thankful it is an easy lace pattern to follow making it a perfect for Tour watching. I have completed two rounds of the pattern so far. Three or four more to go.
