Do you know what the jerseys at the Tour are for? Yellow of course is the race leader. Green is the leader of the sprint category - those boys ride FAST at the finish on the flat stages, it's nuts. And that funny one with the red polka dots is King of the Mountains. There's also a white jersey for best young rider, but it wouldn't fit on my card. :-) I used the new Hero Arts set Kiss from the Sun for my jerseys. I thought the message from Anytime Messages was particularly fitting since if you aspire to ride 2200+ miles on a bike, climbing mountains along the way - you pretty much have to believe in your dreams. Those guys amaze me. Betcha didn't know that, did ya? heh heh
So it was a sad weekend for me and my boy Lance. He had nothing but bad luck yesterday, and his chances of winning the race this year are over. So sad. I didn't honestly ever think he'd win this year - I don't like to say he's OLD because I am a month OLDER than him, LOL - but he's not exactly in the prime of his cycling life anymore. But I at least wanted him to lose it fighting in the mountains, not getting flat tires and crashes and nothing but bad luck. Blah. However there are two weeks left in the tour and there's still things he can do to make this year's Tour interesting (supporting his teammate Levi (who I also happen to love!) and maybe even getting a stage win?) so you know I'm still excited to be watching!! Plus, another of my favorites is riding really well - Cadel Evans became the race leader yesterday and is now wearing the yellow jersey! Woohoo! Do you remember me talking about Cadel last summer?? He's my best twitter friend. HAHAHA Check out THIS POST and especially THIS POST. Yes, I am officially a dork, what can I say.
Ok, maybe this will be the last Tour-inspired card this summer. Maybe. I make no promises. This month cycling has been my muse, and we must always listen to our muse. :-) Happy Stamping!!
