La Vache! (Dauphiné)

As I understand several JustJoeP readers / followers are avid bicyclists, taking on mountains and trails and city scapes from time to time, I thought this recent anecdote might be interesting.  The Critérium du Dauphiné is part of the UCI World Tour that runs through the French Alps, and this year, there were several unexpected bovine participants.  The video speaks for itself.   I hope you enjoy it =)

My apologies if you've already seen this...  I am a little slow on international news it seems, this week.


  1. Unfortunately, Euskaltel-Euskadi rider Mikel Landa fractured his clavicle in that. Cycling is a pretty dangerous profession.

  2. I certainly did not mean to imply glee at M.LANDA's injury by any means. Why I myself once broke a clavicle while a high school student on a bicycle, and that was 1981 antics, mind you, without a vache.
