#tbt - 2010 Tour de France, Stage 3, Tourmalet Pass: Jens Voigt and Matti Breschel eschew the peleton to attend their fallen teammate Frank Schleck (collarbone).

Jens publicly criticized 2010 TdF’s organizers as “assassins” (referencing a 1910 assessment of this same stage) for choosing 8.1mi of peloton-destroying cobblestone road.

By all accounts, Voigt is a stand-up guy. Congrats today on your 51.115km World Record Hour today, @thejensie, and thanks for 17 years of racing!

#3FeetLaw is in effect for CA starting today, minimum $272 fine.

It won’t bring back the 153 CA Cyclists killed by vehicle in 2012 alone (most recently reported data), but it’s a start towards ensuring safety for cyclists today.

Thanks, California.
