Relativity of Time: TdF 2010 Stage 5 (bunchie)


Relativity of Time. I have a great mate who has a theory on the relative speed of time passing. He believes that time should be measured experientially, rather than chronologically (similar to Dunbar in Catch-22, who believes if he does nothing for long enough, time will drag out to the point that he will effectively live forever).

I think there’s something to this from the point of view of the brain. It feels like a couple of months ago that we had the prologue up in Rotterdam, and weeks ago that the Roubaix cobbles stage took place, and yet today is only Stage 6.

Yesterday’s stage showed that even with various broken bones and wounds, our boys are still good enough to be rocking and rolling with the best in the world, forming a very nice lead-out train deep in the final couple of km. With a bit of luck going our way, and less injury, I am sure things would have been even better than they were!
