No Etape du Tour this year as my name didn’t make it through the lucky draw.  Plus of course if the organisers hadn’t sold most of the entries to fat newbies (and why do they all ride Scotts by the way?) who won’t make it to the finish, then they wouldn’t need to put the rest of us in a draw - but that’s another gripe.
