    The tour is on!

    I am probably the only one excited, but the tour is back baby!

    So who does everyone think will contend? I expect most Americans will cheer for Hincape, but Kloden, and Vinikourov look really strong too.

    Re: The tour is on!

    Are the French still drug testing all foreigners from last year? Or did they give up yet?

    Are all of our guys still cheating or did we find some athletes who can be great and clean? The only difference between what our athletes do and old East Germany and China is that we hide it better.

    It is cycling, even the clean ones are under suspicion. It is like all major endurance sports, but cycling and cross country skiing are the worst.

    But at least real sports other than baseball are on for 2 weeks, and when this is all over, we are 2 weeks closer to football.

    ...you mean all cyclists except for the French...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Jan retired in March. Neither Ulrich or Basso rode last year because of doping scandals on their teams.

    I love to follow the Tour. Unfortunately, I'll miss most of it this year as I'm beginning my own bicycle tour today (of Alaska).

    Re: The tour is on!

    Root for Levi Leipheimer, he is leading team discovery (Lance's old team) and is probably the favored american.

    For the next few days you will hear the names, Mcewen, Kloden, Hurhsold. They are the big sprinters, and on the first couple of days it is all about the sprinters, the guys challenging for the overall title will not shine until they hit the mountains next week.
