Millar’s solo heroics upstage the eagles

TONY ROMINGER won his second huge Alpine stage in as many days and Miguel Indurain kept his iron grip on the Tour, but it was Scotland’s Robert Millar who won the hearts yesterday.

The Swiss finished half a wheel in front of the Spaniard after a 113-mile stage of more than 5 1/2 hours from Serre-Chevalier. But Millar had earlier written himself indelibly into the folk history of this towering race with a solo ride over the exposed summit of the Col de la Bonette, which rises to a dizzying 9,200ft and to which Europe’s highest road clings precariously.

single-handedly bike

Only twice before has it featured in the Tour, in 1962 and 1964. The legendary Spanish climber Federico Bahamontes, the winner in 1959 and the mountain king a record six times, took it on both occasions.

Millar attacked at the foot of the Bonette’s immense 15-mile climb together with Pedro Delgado. He eventually shook off the Spaniard to breast the peak more than a minute clear of Rominger and Indurain. It was a truly magnificent ride by the 34-year-old Scot who has, almost single-handedly, flown the British flag in the Tour over the past decade.

Laser Rangefinder For Hunting: Basics and Why You Should Use It?

Before advance hunting tech was accessible and affordable to everyone, laser rangefinders were one of the best kept secrets only the elite can afford. LRF for short, these were expensive hunting gears that cost thousands of dollars. Despite that gold price tag, it gave huge advantage to those who had them, ramping up the game by increasing precision and accuracy over each shot.

Now there are low-priced laser rangefinders designed for long range sports. Many swear that it’s an essential gear worth investing in, and you can now find the best hunting rangefinder without breaking the bank.

What is a Laser Rangefinder?

Before laser rangefinders, there were optical rangefinders that were used to determine the distance of a faraway object from the user. To be able to calculate the accurate distance of a target is a very essential skill in hunting, archery and other long range sports. However the old rangefinders were large, and crude, and because of these reasons, not many users bring them during hunting trips.

Laser rangefinders operate on the same function but are now more affordable and give better performance compared to their optical counterparts. A single unit can now fit in your pocket and even the lowest priced ones have better ranging performance than previous optical models. The main difference now is that it’s equipped with smart and laser-precision tech, it can function as an in-scope binocular which can magnify your view of your target, and comes with other built-in features that can really make ranging easy.

Relieved Marie in splendid isolation

THIERRY MARIE, winner of last Saturday’s prologue in Lyon, will ride through his beloved Normandy today resplendent in the Tour de France leader’s yellow jersey.

Marie, his eyes as blue as cornflowers, his hair as golden as corn (this is a local newspaper’s description, by the way) struck for home yesterday some 15 miles outside Arras and rode alone and unaided to Le Havre, a further 145 miles, to win the stage and recapture the maillot jaune.

It was a formidable effort by a man who specializes in being the fastest against the clock over distances of less than 10 kilometers. He has won three Tour de France prologues in the past six years, his only other stage win being at Chalon-sur-Saone in 1988.

The cobbled square in Arras was thronged with excited, animated French and Belgians yesterday morning. They deeply love their cycling in the north and if there was disappointment over the loss of Rolf Sorensen the mood was quickly dispelled.

Another long, hot day was in prospect and few paid much notice when Marie first broke. Then two minutes became three, nine became ten, and finally, his lead had stretched to more than 20 minutes. Marie was lost, as was nearly everybody else when a sea-fret drifted in from the Channel.

Discovering New Trails For Mountain Biking In The Birds Hill Park

In my whole biking career, I have discovered a lot of trails. Every one of them has become my golden memory. Recently, I went to the Birds Hill Park in Manitoba. I was accompanied by some wonderful bikers. They were from Winnipeg forum for bikers. Temporarily, they took me on the team. Riding with the others is safer and more adventurous. From my past experiences, I knew that their knowledge about biking will enrich me a lot. But I did not know the real benefit till one of them introduced me to a completely new path in the Park.

He asked me whether I was familiar with trails in the Park or not. I was new there, so I replied negatively. That old and experienced biker showed me several new trails that were full of adventures. Firstly, I should give you an overview of the Birds Hill Park. The northern side of the park is a heaven for the hiker. There are trails for horse-riding, hiking, and walking. Most of the trails are hidden as people used to go a particular place again and again. Do you want to find a single track on here too? It’s possible if you continue reading this.

Biking

At first, you have to be destined for Griffiths Hill. When you reached the place, there will be a tower for viewing. The trails that I am suggesting is not far from the viewing tower. Look for the “Esker” and keep going. Take a look at the left side and you can notice a single path. It’s the entrance of your desired single track.

The actual excitement is in the trees. You will face challenges in every twist and the turn. When you try to climb up, the twisted paths of trees may create obstacles. It seems more interesting when there will be slopes. I found three trails in there and they meet with the “Chickadee”. Are you interested in discovering some more? Don’t worry. I will help you out.
