Tour of Sufferlandria - Stage 8: Recap & Photos

After taking a battering in a 7th stage that will go down in history as being one EPIC MOTHER F&^%ER of a Stage, tensions were high amongst the riders. The aggression even spilled over into Twitter...

But, come morning, the peloton rolled out of the start of Stage 8 (Blender) with a new peculiar, new-found confidence. Some riders even brought in reinforcements to their teams...

Ahead lay nearly two hours of Pain Shakes, Minion Grinders and of course, PAIN, AGONY and MISERY! The question on everyone's mind was...   

Coach Neal Henderson, the evil mastermind behind the design of Stage 8, even showed up to the start line with a body guard...  

...with Minions holding back the peloton who seemed quite eager to 'thank' Coach Henderson for his contributions to Sufferlandrian society, the focus turned to the race at hand and the Suffering got underway.     

 Yes, Sir David Triska is doing the entire Tour in a respirator to raise awareness of Veterans' Mental Health issues...  

Into the Pain Shakes and the Sufferlandrian Holy Water flowed freely...    

With Stage 8 in the bag, and a time bonus on offer for EVERY one of the 64 sprints in Stage 9, the chances for GLORY are high for our Sufferlandrians!    

Sleep well...the end is near...
