    But smart enough to get two sets of kisses from the blonde podium girl.

    Sagan is also leading the points jersey, which is always his goal. Three weeks is a long time. Mountains tomorrow, but the tough one is Thursday.

    I watched "The Move" on YouTube today.
    Odd.
    I'm hoping to catch the "Off Script" show next time it shows.

    The funny thing is, for all of Armstrong’s ‘insider’ knowledge, he seems very out of date and uninformed about the who’s who of the current peloton. I can’t deal wth 45 minutes of rambling and promoting his various investments on a daily basis.

    I sort of walked in and out of the room while watching/listening so hit and miss. I didn't see that it added anything to the Tour experience for me.
    I'm more interested to see Bobke's new show.

    Tomorrow looks nasty.

    Who's the little bald commentator, and why do I feel like he's got the headpiece to the Staff of Ra burned into his right palm?

    I got to watch today's stage finally.
    Finally, Sagan!
    Animal.
    Tomorrow is the killer stage. I can't wait.

    I have watched the Tour from back in the days of Sam Posey covering it and still love following the Tour. Having said that since I’ve started riding motorcycles I also enjoy watching the various motorcycles in the caravan. Can not wait to see how the niken handles the high speed descents this year.

    Just turned on Stage 6. Glad to see Thomas deGhent. I also like this guy in the polka dots, riding smart to get kissed by podium girls as many times as possible.

    This year I watched much of 3 and 5 on the B roll....the ad free version. Today I’m on “live” with Phil and Bob. Much more engaging pair. But, have to suffer adverts. Bob has improved his game. Still has a wars to go, but glad the Bobke schtick isn’t as evident.

    Watching live is not possible for me. I'm far too old to wake up that early. I like the commentary better on the ad feed over the non-ad. I can just barely understand the two guys on there.
    I'm not cycling today so I can re-watch the part of the race I missed up to about 28 km to go.
    GCN had a good preview of this days climbs too.

    We caught "Off Script" last night on demand. I liked it.

    Wow. Like they were riding through molasses, but somehow just as dramatic as a sprint finish.

    Something like 23-24% in the last pitch. Yikes.
