Its actually been an ok Tour. With the boring Lance era behind us and the Floyd scandal left behind, it seems like the Tour is moving foward.
Cancellara is the man. He brought more honor to the yellow jersey than anyone in the last decade by his gutsy win the other day. None of this "I am in yellow, better not take any chances" attitude that seems to be prevelant since the Lance era took over. That was one for the ages. Did you see the look on the faces of the breakaway when they saw the yellow jersey come screaming by them like they were sitting still? That made the tour not gay. Also I think its rad how he let his legs say "screw you" for being left off the tour team last year since the team was built around Basso who wound up not being allowed to start.
Levi you will never be a tour winner. The way Vino bitch slapped you two years ago to overtake 5th from you by winning on the "Champs" and getting the time bonus was spectacular. Tour winners dont take that kind of beating. You lack the panache to make it happen also you are riding a Trek.
Kloden and Hicapie are doped. How do you beat an olympic track star (Wiggins) at his distance? When is Hincapie going to realize he isnt going to get anywhere riding a Trek too?
The first real true winner from last years tour was Micheal Rogers. The rest were doped.
I love the crashes, its giving the sport legitmacy.
Boonen will win green. To all the Boonen haters out there, he is the man. Not only can he sprint with the best of them, but he will ride you off his wheel at Flanders. Let me see any other sprinter do that. However is going to have some competition from McEwen, that dude is king of the sprint when it gets messy.
Zabel will get 3 more second places and walk away without a win.
But the best thing about this Tour, there is no Simoni!!
