Eric’s “Finish” <ul><li>“ I was climbing Col d’Ichère — about three hours into the ride — when I was caught by the voiture balai (the broom wagon) — a car outfitted with a large digital clock and a sign indicating that the end of the course had reached me, and my race was over. A gendarme standing near the place I was swept smiled and said “It’s hard, no?” Some villagers trotted over to shake my hand in congratulations for my efforts, and took my picture while I sat on a boulder and awaited the semi-trailer truck that would take my bike across the finish line well in advance of the winner.” </li></ul>
  12. 17. <ul><li>“ The reactions of people who have seen that photo have been interesting, and most have been surprised that the picture was taken after the race, not before, as I look happy and satisfied.” </li></ul>

  14. 19. <ul><li>“ Perhaps I should have upgraded my bicycle” </li></ul>
