One month away.
New teams for many riders.
May get to Paris for the finish this year.
I can't wait. I watch every morning and then the highlights at night. I love it.
Waiting to get the all access app for the phone,$4.99 from NBC.
Can't wait to see Andy get shelled again.

actually for me it should be
Going to try and "ride the tour" this year-- exercise bike is going in front of the TV with the DVR. I'm just starting so I won't be hitting the whole two hour show, but a good half hour to 45 minutes.
Hmmmm, you may be disappointed on that count.
Excellent time if you can make it. I've been on the Champs Elysees a couple times for the race, last time in 1998, when Pantani completed the Giro-Tour double. Ullrich and Julich also on the podium that year. Still have my copy of L'Equipe from the next day, with cover pic of podium, Julich with a smile of disbelief.
It's a great spectacle. My next trip to a grand tour will be in the mountains, probably a week in the Italian Dolomites.
For those who don't have cable or other TV, there is lots of free live online coverage at www.steephill.tv in several different languages. They carry 10 or more different streams and also link post-race to finish-line clips of 1-10km, highlights and other news sites. Good clearinghouse for live and archived cycling vids of all kinds. From that site and gazzetta.it: here is my favorite 10km of racing so far this year, the uphill finish of stage 15 of this year's Giro d'Italia. In Italian, but the announcers' energy transcends mere language.
For live race chat and commentary (a virtual cyclosport pub), www.podiumcafe.com has a great crew of cognoscenti, keen observers, hopeless romantics, and attentive and astute reporters from inside and alongside the races.
Been there a couple of times as lived in Paris for seven years. Love the Tour.
andy schleck, all day
my friend and I used to mimic the day's stages, albeit on a miniature scale a few years ago. the time trials were always fun
Uhhh, isn't Nebraska flat?
NE TN isn't.
I see, I did not read far enough. You are right, great riding. Although, I'll stick to internal combustion while there. And I can't fart that hard.
Could this be his year?
It wil be interesting to see how the team handles having both Wiggins and Cavendish.
Going to be very interesting to see how he and Cav get on in the same team with very different agendas.
Just saw this after I posted the same thing....
I will be very interesting no doubt. Be great if Sky could get both Yellow and Green
