Why? .........andy1234 said:Not directly doping related, but who on here will be going to watch the TDF at the roadside? I'm interested to see how many Clinic regulars are still prepared to stand at the side of the road and watch the spectacle.
I'm interested in who, despite their interest in doping and everything that goes with it, are still drawn to watch the Tour.Dr. Maserati said:Why not answer your own opening post - and then you can answer the "why?".
See - wasn't so hard?andy1234 said:I'm interested in who, despite their interest in doping and everything that goes with it, are still drawn to watch the Tour.
It will be interesting to see which posters are fans first and dissenters second.
I have worked at the tour and stood at the side of the road as a fan, and regardless of the scandal, find myslf loving it more each year.
Brilliant, book the flight.Dr. Maserati said:See - wasn't so hard?
All dissenters are fans of the sport - if they weren't they wouldn't care to post. (also, your inherent point is not great in so far as the Tour is one of the worst races to go and see, the Giro or classics are better)
You often bring up other sports doping problems when discussing cycling or The Clinic, when of course many of us simply don't care about the other sports - that is why I always schedule time off in July.
I was scheduled to go to the Tour, then that was cancelled - but I was back checking flights again earlier today.
That was my original plan - go to Alpe d'Huez and drink a mountain of beer.andy1234 said:Brilliant, book the flight.
I'll meet you on a mountain somewhere and buy you a beer.
I prefer the Giro to the Tour - even though the crowds are huge its much easier for getting around, finding accommodation and meeting people.Benotti69 said:No TdF for me.
Watched 2 stages on the Giro this from the road . Shouted at cuddles too
Going to watch Giro delle Donne on saturday
