Word of the Day: contre la montre

contre la montre - against the watch
contre la montre individuel - Individual Time Trial 
contre la montre par équipe - Team Time Trial
Just saying these words feels good. Watching a TTT feels even better. In 2011 there will be a Team Time Trial in both the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France!

Mark your calendars - The Team Time Trial is a sight to behold: 
Tour de France, Stage 2, Team TT, Sunday 3 July, Les Essarts > Les Essarts, 23 km, see the route 
Giro d'Italia: Stage 1, Team TT, Saturday 7 May, Venaria Real > Torino, 19.3 km, see route
