A Colombian team at the Tour?

Although I originally planned to do a full post today, personal life has a funny way of stopping you from doing incredibly important things, like posting on your widely read, and highly revered blog. Forgive me. It might be a few days before things are back to normal due to personal business. In the meantime, I leave you with a short, but positive article that ran in Pro Cycling regarding Colombian climbers (thanks to Graeme at Rapha for the heads up). Noteworthy quote from this article by Christian Prudhomme, who has left the door open to a national squad competeing at the 2013 Tour:

"I dream about a comeback of climbers who look like climbers and I would be delighted to welcome a Colombian team at the 100th Tour de France."

Please excuse my short absence. I'll be back as soon as I can.
