Better than the Giro? Ha!!Moviefan1203 said:I don't see how people are saying this. I already think this Tour has been light years better than the Giro. Accidents are part of the sport, the only difference is this year it is happening to GC riders instead of the normal group of rag tags.
The only thing "stirring" about this Tour so far have been the crashes.
Nothing compared to having an Etna stage in the first week.
And if I see another damn bicycle made of tractors as the only point of interest on a parcours that literally puts one to sleep, I'm going to throw my shoe at the television screen.
To say nothing of the way the contenders are racing, which with the rare exception of a gutsy Vino the other day, makes it difficult for one not to catch up on his shut-eye.
The bad news is that we have to wait till Thursday, of the second week!, for it to get any better. That is, if we haven't totally lost interest by then.
