Tour de France

Anyone catch Voeckler's kick today (stage 5)? Pretty inspiring. This is the first Tour I've paid any attention to. There's a dynamic with this race that's unlike any other sport that I've followed. Particularly the way groups of teammates and non-teammates help each other until the last few thousand meters. It's 50 miles of cooperation and 2 miles of fight. Regardless of whether your on the same team or not, the same rules seem to apply.

Also, I hadn't realized how controversial Armstrong is. He's a pariah loved by millions. After pretty much every race, the Versus people will interview one of the Astana members or the manager or whatever and ask, "Who's the leader?" The answer varies. Levi, at the end of stage 2(?), suggested that he could be the leader since he's won stages in previous Tours, but also put his weight behind Contador for winning the Tour 2 years ago. Lance sees himself as the leader and forced the issue at stage 4, during the team time trial, where he put himself within 22/100ths of the yellow jersey. After that, even the manager said Lance could lead, then reported the team hadn't discussed it. Lance wants us to wait for the mountains, which starts at stage 11. There will be a preview climb at stage 7, that may give an idea of how strong Lance and the other mountain men may be.

I like watching this too especially when the women race but never mind that what draws me is watching them pedal a machine designed to fit their bodies perfectly to the point that if I had the thousands of dollars for a bike custom made to fit me perfectly down the road when I have lost enough weight I can really see myself be a roadie.

Extremely exciting stuff happening right now. At least according to the commentators. And there's still four hours left!

Nothing more enjoyable than watching a bunch of straight guys ruining their prostates.

They lubricate their spinter with vasaline to ease the friction when they ride I swear I'm not making this up.

Lance behind by 8 seconds (3rd place) after stage 7. Stage 9 complete and standings remain. 4 Astana members in top 10.

Wow, I never knew how many people really hate Lance Armstrong. They hated him when he won everything and now they ridicule him for not winning everything. "Yeah, that'll show him. Those seven wins were just evil tricks, and luck. Haha, suck on your second place, 'Mr. Superman'".
