Le Tour

Gaps in the peloton
As the race continues on
Energy spent in watts
Harder on the hilly spots.

Winds across the flats
Sprint points, jersey stats
Polka dots for mountain climbs
A tough job at the best of times.

Twenty-one days in all
Difficult to avoid a fall
Cobblestones and hairpin turns
Often lead to road rash burns.

Team sport if you will
Protect the leader with your skill.
So that that one gets a jersey
Different from yours…mercy!
