Well, I'm not as gung ho about the TdF this year as I have been in the past, the doping allegations seem to overshadow it at every turn. However, the enthusiastic turn out in England for the first two days has been pretty cool. I didn't realize there were so many cycling fans in the UK! It's great that Ulrich and Armstrong aren't riding this year, it's time the younger riders have a chance. Is anybody here going to see it live? My first and only time was in 1988, watching them sprint up the Champs Elysee is pretty cool.
