Process vs Outcome

Ronde tomorrow. Who will win. Don't know. Don't care.

An inflammatory statement certainly and one I only partially agree with.

I make no guesses as to the victor and in a sense I don't actually mind who wins. What I am interested in is the process of reaching the final outcome. I hope for a an edgy race, full of happening and intrigue. Attack, counter attack, a breakaway brought back, team tactics gone awry, a suspense thriller caught on your favourite sports channel on a sunny spring afternoon.

Process vs Outcome. A desire for a hard racing spectacle, rather than rooting for a particular rider to win.

Don't care. Not true, the excitement I'm getting about tomorrow tells me something else.
