Stage 7 – Steep Climbs and Harrowing Descents

July 11, 2008

Phil Ligget on VERSUS TV did the intro to today’s broadcast of Stage 7 with just those words.

Part of the reason for his poetry was probably his own harrowing journey to the finish last night in Paul Sherwen’s car.

It was mentioned at the top of the show that they almost went off the mountain last night while driving the course.

I’m hoping that his experience of last night is not a predictor of the events of the day. But it very well might be. The roads are steep in both directions – up and down – and people will be attacking like mad today.

I’ll give you some color from the broadcast as we go forward.
