This is my cousin Palo Phillipe', famous French bicycle racer, competing in the Tour De New Paltz ( take my Time Trial ). Crazed fans and a bored dog follow him everywhere. The Tour De New Paltz is a good warm up for the Tour De France coming up soon. This take my Time Trial section features grueling, modest inclines and terrifying, easy declines. Next week is Highland's Giro De Geezer, an all out, casual ride to the walkway bridge. Then on to France.
