Did anyone else go to this (Tuesday 19th pm)?

Bloody inspirational watching some of these athletes with multiple amputations pounding around the course!

For you Londoners, I cannot recommend strongly enough that you go see the Paralympic events. The competitors there will remind you what "awesome" really means.

I posted this pic a while back over in Commuting.. This photo was taken while he was participating in the "Haute Route" tour through the Alps. That's right, the 7 day tour that among other things, had one day with riders climbing the Madeleine, Telegraphe and Galibier cols. It also went over the Cime de la Bonette, just over 9,000 ft elevation.

Saw the training session on the news. I reckon on going to watch the actual thing one day it's on, sure to be some great racing.
Also saw that chap above on the Haute Route show on Eurosport. Man he's one ultra tough bloke, properly inspirational stuff.
