Can You Fix It? PN20-31
While Nicolas Edet (Cofidis) had already done enough to ensure his Maillot a Pois would be his for this year's slightly shorten Paris Nice. He was still doing all he could to add KOM points and to win the final stage of the race. With 44 kilometers left to race, he was frustrated to have a mechanical. While hoping to get it fixed without stopping, that wasn't possible. After a quick minor repair he was quickly back onto the six man break up the road. I am always amazed at the race mechanics that hang out of the rear window of a team car trying to repair a fast moving bicycle from a fast moving car on a mountain road. At least this repair was done while climbing, so a bit lower speeds.
