Dont attack on the last day of the Tour de France. - Cycling

 

Another tradition is that you don't attack on the last day of the race; the final stage is usually an easy rolling ride into Paris; the only real racing is the last few laps around the Champs-Elysees for the sprinters. I wish they would make the final stage an individual time trial into Paris like they did when Lemond won by eight whole seconds (Contador's current margin over Schleck, btw).    -- Straight Dope boards

 


If a stage of the Tour de France ends on Bastille Day in France, try to let a Frenchman win.  -- LA Times
