Listen, it was really fucking hot. Like record-record-breaking hot. Like all over the Netherlands people were complaining about the heat, and saying things like this is the hottest day on record since the start of the Spanish Inquisition, when was that again? Dear Reader, for your information the Spanish Inquisition started in 1478, a little less than 600 years ago. Also it was humid. Today. It was humid today. I don’t know if it was humid during the Spanish Inquisition, though one can only assume.
Pick up my photo vest. CHECK. Only, don’t call it a vest here, they’re bibs. If you ask for a vest you will get a blank stare.
Get Keiran a credential. UNCHECKED. Fabrice said to send him an email. I think he meant it. Bottom line we can only have three credentials at one time. I explained to him that Emiliano isnt here yet, and that Keiran and Emiliano are basically splitting the race. And so at any given time three is our max. He said okay okay, send me an email because eeess too crazy right now.
Don’t pass out. CHECK
Bring sunscreen and an innercity or post-workout neck towel to the race. BIG MISS. On both counts.
Don’t get heat stroke. CHECK. I think???, how do you know if you have heat stroke? Keiran got blotchy and Raoul had to sit down in the shade and drink beers for two hours.
Photograph the race. BIG MISS.
Attend the Tour De France. CHECK.
