too bad they go so fast... they blow through some amazingly beautiful country, including my wife's hometown.

looks like stage 9 runs along route 40, which runs nearly the length of argentina, 3100+ miles of unpaved glory in the rainshadow of the andes. i've been all through much of the region, just not at 80mph wheelies and drifting around blind curves.

i'd like to watch, but they are always opposite our summer here in the northern hemisphere.
