      Anyone else watching this? Have a favorite? Team/sprinter/climber?

      My dh does some cycling and he got me watching with him….
      Although I still think they have to be part CRAZY to enjoy some of the those insane climbs…. but it's still fun to watch…..

            My husband used to cycle and we watch it every year. I'm really not as into it as I was when Lance Armstrong was in it. My dh still likes to watch it though and he gets into it just like any other sport. HAHAHA

            Oh and man, some of those accidents! You should check out You tube – they have some videos on just the crashes!

              Can't believe I am the ONLY ONE here watching this…..

              Yeah Diana, they are calling this year's race the 'tour de crash' because of the amount of NASTY crashes…..
              Did you see the one where the news car HIT two of the riders and one wiped out on the pavement and the other one flew, head of heals, into a barbed wire fence?????
              And he even got back on his bike and finished the race that day…..

                Watching a bunch of guys bike isn't really my idea of riveting tv. ;)

                  Yeah I saw that. I yelled at the car! LOL – I hate that they can get so close to the riders – it's not fair. I so think they should get some kind of fine or something especially if they hit someone!

                      especially when you see the outfits….. they really should have to wear long
                      shirts if they are going to wear those skin tight padded bike shorts….. LOL

                              Lance will always be his fave. I don't think he has one now. He was pretty content with Cadel Evans winning though. Who were you guys wanting to see win?

                                As for the tour…. did you see Cadel, and the Schleck brother on the podium???? That was ridiculous!!!!
                                I wanted to see Contador back on the podium mainly because I can't STAND andy schleck!!! Conceited little peacock!!!
                                But Cadel was okay…..
