VeloNews | Tyler Tunes : On top of l'Alpe

Tyler Freaking Hamilton has updated his race diary at VeloNews.

On the technical side, he explains one adjustment they've made since he can't comfortably stand on the bike:

I've been trying to concentrate on using a higher cadence in this year's Tour de France. I've been riding a 52x36 instead of a typical 53x39.

The man is simply unbelievable. If I was in his place, I wouldn't be able to stand up straight for all the horse tranquilizers I'd be popping.
