Leipheimer diary updated

Bike.com Levi Awaits His Tour de France Start

It's the calm before the storm, and Rabobank's Levi Leipheimer updated his web diary on the anticipation and pomp surrounding the "Superbowl of biking." Of the "parade lab," where organizers confirm the physical condition of all the riders, he says:

They take our temperature, measure us, weigh us, make sure our hearts are beating and all that stuff. The press film it all so everyone knows we're in perfect health going into the tour. That, and they'll know if we become shorter at any point during the race? So much for my half inch shorter identical twin jumping in for me after week two.

Don't know how to reach him, but I'd like to wish Levi all the luck in the world. We were classmates and neighbors in Butte, Montana (from ages 9 to 15) and I've met his fans in Switzerland and England. Race hard, Levi!
