Exclamation Cycling lover ? It's that time of the year again : Tour de France !

People will say that sport is a doped sport maybe but at the other side that sport is in some countries very popular and what's great at it : You don't have to spend a cent to watch your favorite cycling riders ! It's maybe the less expensive sport but what it annoys me a lot is the presence of Alberto Contador : He shouldn't be there at all and his thing that he's fighting against doping : that's the best joke of the year !

Re: Cycling lover ? It's that time of the year again : Tour de France !

the crowd booed Contador at the team presentations this week and cheered loudly for Andy Schleck

I guess we know who the crowd favourite will be!

I'm one of those people that believes about 97% of the field is doped in some capacity, so it ends up being an even playing field of the Tour de Dopage

I will follow the Tour de France like every year

I hope it will be more spectacular than last year (there was suspense but no actual spectacle in most case...). Contador and Schleck are huge favorites, I admit I prefer Contador as he is more an attacker than Schleck, they're both equally doped anyway...

The key is probably how Contador has recovered from the Giro as he is clearly the best at his top form for this kind of race.

Re: Cycling lover ? It's that time of the year again : Tour de France !

Apparently TF is not very enthusiastic about cycling

Yesterday Team Time Trial :

1 GARMIN-CERVELO (GRM) 24'48''
2 TEAM BMC RACING (BMC) +04''
3 SKY PROFESSIONAL CYCLING TEAM (SKY) s.t.
4 TEAM LEOPARD-TREK (LEO) s.t.
5 HTC-HIGHROAD (THR) +05''
6 TEAM RADIOSHACK (RSH) +10''
7 RABOBANK (RAB) +12''
8 SAXO BANK SUNGARD (SBS) +28''
9 ASTANA (AST) +32''
10 OMEGA PHARMA-LOTTO (OLO) +39''

Contador is now 1'41 behind Evans and 1'38 behind Schleck. What a bad start for him, he looked quite depressed and resigned in an interview on French TV yesterday evening

I hope he won't give up and be unleashed in the Pyrénées

Today flat stage, Cavendish huge favorite.

Well done by Philippe Gilbert in the first stage. He's getting a bit cocky though

It's a good thing that Contador's behind. Now we will see if he's really that great. He will have to attack in the mountains now, could be exciting.

But first some more flat stages. Hopefully, Andy won't mess up as well in one of them

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

He will probably keep the yellow jersey until tomorrow. I don't know if he could keep it then with the tough finish in Mûr-de-Bretagne.

Epic sprint but HTC took the wrong tactics they went on way too early at my opinion and at the crucial moment, Cavendish was all alone with no teammates left ! But it proves that Cavendish can be beaten in sprints that he isn't as invicible as he may think !

About Gilbert being cocky : Cavendish also is very cocky telling everyone he's the best and his opponents are nothing worth !

Nice gesture of Tyler Farrar where he dedicated his victory to his best friend Wouter Weylandt ! Tomorrow it should be a stage for Phillipe Gilbert : Fingers crossed !
