And they’re off

With a record number of potatoes this year (268), the 2022 edition of Le Tour de Couch Potato is off to an awesome start. We have 47 potatoes stomping on their pedals already and almost 800 miles logged. Those boys in France have nothing on us.

Mythical Patata and Stormin’ Spud are checking in with over 40 miles each while close on their tail are Marshmallow Fluff Potato and LowTato.

Keep an eye on our three potatoes who have finished every edition of the Couch Potato – Duchess Potato, Madam Tuber (yours truly) and Bubba Spud – can they all make it 12 years in a row?

Here’s hoping we have more finishers than ever and no DUD SPUDS!

Potato Happenings:

Marshmallow Fluff Potato was able to get all those miles on her Peloton as a now retired, spoiled rotten potato – her inner jock has joined her inner child and both are happy to be back.

Cajun Gator Tater is tipping the helmet to La Nuova Patata for letting her borrow her bike (though she went through 3 tubes on a short ride).

Irish Spud, Harley Taterson, Papas Marinas, and Rob Roy Tuber are all excited to be out for another tour. Spuddux, Yam Kronen, Swisher Sweet Potato, and Tom Tater all got to enjoy the outdoors – Tom Tater’s enjoyment was in question as he had to ride between the raindrops.

Potato Prez started off today in 94 degrees but a nice flat ride – he’s looking for magnet number 10! Billy Spud joined a group ride on the bike that goes nowhere to start looking for magnet number 1!

Did you know…the 1st Tour de France started on this date in 1903? It lasted for 19 days – thanks Mystery Spud for our fun fact of the day!
