I'm really rooting for Froome as GC. I'd love nothing more than to see TeeJay shake things up as well as Sagan ruffling Cav's feathers. I think it's a shame BMC has named Cadel as Captain, but I hope he supports the apprentice if the dynamics start to shift. This sport has some character again!

Yep. Part of the reason I watch is for the scenery shots. Corsica has certainly been added to a must visit someday list for me.

I don't have cable, and am checking out either the streaming online, or the app for my iPhone. Anybody have experience with the app? Why is it only half the price of the streaming access?

It's stupid that they are separate items, but that is what we are stuck with.

The NBC iPad app is the best use of $15 I have run into for a long while.

Each stage start to finish; endless replays of each stage in it's entirety; and, best of all, no commercials! Highly recommended!

As an aside, it will be a sad day when Phil and Paul retire...

Last year I would have agreed no question.
So far this year Phil has made some big goofs.

Most notably declaring Sagan the winner before they even crossed the line.
A good bet you would think but it's not over 'til it's over.

To be fair, that was a very very close finish so I'm gonna give him (and anyone for that matter) a pass on that one. Also, would you have bet against Sagan 30 yards out

Not much excitement with yesterday's TTT but I have to admit that I'm glad to see some other teams bubbling to the top rather than the typical super-teams.

Between watching F1 and the TdF and my clonky new DVR I am really regretting switching from Directv to Cable, HD ain't so HD anymore.

Every single freakin' time I get to see a sprint like that with Cav in contention I think he's left it too late/gone too early and every single freakin' time he pulls it out the bag


GO CAV
