More Floyd

He won the Tour. Amazing.

Something cool about Floyd I've picked up in a lot of the stuff I've read. He likes Deep Thoughts. That's got to be a good thing.

Long profile from Ouside (found via Matt ). It's got a really cool part where they talk about how they figured out Floyd needed more burst capability and trained for it:

on a steep, Tour-type climb, New Floyd will ride 3.7 miles per hour faster than Old Floyd for those five seconds, enough to open a gap of eight meters.

The good old US of A was looking pretty thin there for awhile with bad showing in international competitions like the World Cup and Wimbeldon (maybe it's the 'W's! ;-). Nice to cap this one, along with Tiger's win in the British Open today.
