Since the start of the Tour de France is just hours away...
This is far and away my favorite sporting event of the year! What these guys do for 3 weeks on a bicycle is unfathomable to me! 2300 miles, thru the Pyrannes and the Alps- averaging almost 30 mph on theri bikes!
Lance goes for 6 in a row... dont have a good feeling this year- too many knucklehead specators too close to the action, all it takes is for one non fan to ruin it! The tour is slanted this year to the mountain climbers, which favors well for Lance... watch out for Iban Mayo, Jan Ullrich, and USA's Tyler Hamilton.
I cant believe they start the first day with a 4 mile prolouge? you wait 340 days for a 4 mile start? giddyup!
