Magpie Tales Photo Prompt 75: Tour de France


 Performance-enhancing drugs?  
Well, I did think there was 
 something slightly "off" during 
Lance's last ride in France.

 Maybe his tire pressure was 
just a bit low...

  3. Too funny, Rick. Must be a guy thing, though, as Lance didn't enter my head until I saw what you'd written. Good one!
    I made a series of egregious errors while posting my Mag 75, so I finally e-mailed Tess to see if she could fix it. I hope she can.

  6. Rick,
    That's a good twist to a Cycling Champion gone awry. It was a pity and a sad ending!

  7. The "Lance" drivel is tiring... poke a lance in the tire. Quite a connection you've made... good one!
