I had never before heard of a TdF rider taking to his feet, however briefly, but it happened today. Well, what's a guy to do when his bike gets wrecked and a replacement bike isn't right there? According to an article I was reading, it's OK as long as the rider-turned-runner actually crosses the finish line on a bike. They know the rules a lot better than I ever will, so I'll leave it up to them.
This afternoon we had a lot of cloud cover, and some rain, and the temperature dropped to 81! After days of heat indices over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, that's a welcome relief.
