Le Tour de France

Congratulations to Carlos Sastre, the winner of this year’s Tour de France. He and his Team CSC rode him to victory perfectly, with The Schleck brothers leading the way.

He shared the podium with Cadel Evans, who took second place for the second straight year, and Bernhard Kohl in third. Special mention to Christian Vandevelde from Chicago who came in fifth place, his best Tour finish ever.

The Tour de France is an amazing visual spectacle, you don’t have to watch the riders or even listen to the announcers to enjoy the show. The helicopters and motorcycle cameras will show you the French countryside in the best travelogue style.

So what does this have to do with fermentation? France is much better known for wine than beer and the grape harvest is coming up here rather quickly. Now is the time to make sure you have all your equipment in order and review your notes and prepare.
