That's a good story. He's lucky he's so nice because there is a maximum speed you can go and he exceeded it, so they could have dnf'd him. I have heard there is no food for faster riders, because none of them use it, but he got food at every control but one. So he didn't really finish on cashews or a baguette.

His concern for the slow riders he saw on the way to Brest when he was returning to Paris is well taken. I have always thought that time in the saddle is just as hard on you at a slower pace as it is at a faster pace. And also, I slept for 6 hours out of the last 12.
