Tour de France Day 1

It's day 1 of the Tour de France. Starting with a short individual team time trial (6.1 km) in Liege Belgium. Looks to be a simple out and back course. Fastest cyclist at the moment is Pereiro at 7:01.39, givng him an average speed of 52.1 kph. They're really cruising. I can only manage speeds like that for short bursts.

Today's OLN word of the day is CYCLYSM.
