53x11 in DC said:OK FKennandBarbie, you're in there too! Let's f'in enjoy the festivities. MellowBiggyDiggyDangVelo will try to tell you how boring these stages are (love ya MV, and you're often right), but this could be a freakin show!! at least we all should hope so.
For those of you who haven't watched from the roadside:
With a few thousand of your new bestest friends, translating in whatever language works (including Italian sign language), I can assure you that you'll, just for a moment, forget the sheeite that has plagued our sport since the olden days.
agreed.. just a shame with work we only ever get to go to paris.. (the wife teaches, so she breaks up just before the end of the tour :/)
but even 12 hours stood in blazing heat on the champs elysees has its moments... the chance to congratulate EVERY SINGLE ONE of the riders who has finished is worth it.. doped or not.. Personally, i couldnt complete the tour on epo, cera, with seventeen blood transfusions and a line of coke every morning..
