Today the tour de France Starst with a Prologue in Liege (Belgium)

I hope there will be no Doping BS this Year even i guess that the whole Pro Cycling Sport

is involved in such things...there are just the ones who are doing good in Doping and there are the ones who are doing worse ..well thats my opinion.

Hope for some exciting Sport over 3 Weeks though....

All News, Temas , Stages , Stats, etc. here...

Top Favourites are Cadel Evans (AUS) and Bradley Wiggins (GBR) and some other Drivers as well...

..curious where Ryder Hesjedal will finish after his furious Win at the Giro di Italia.

German Classment Drivers are may Veteran Andreas Klöden and TimeTrail Specialist Tony Martin.

Further i´m cherring for Nikolas Roche from Ireland...hehehehe

Gutted Wiggo didn't win the prologue today, but Cancellara absolutely smashed the time trial. Well deserved win.

Quite odd watching it from Canada this year, I think the guys on TSN2 are the UK ITV4 cycling commentary team. Don't think it's Eurosport. Ah well, 3 weeks of TdF, happy days :)

If all the cyclists wore jeans, it'd be the Tour the Pants.

:bigblush:

Or if it was a sweet rave, it'd be the Tour the Trance :lol:

Yet another great stage win for Cav. Made even greater by having no support and going it alone! I think he and Wiggo are going to dominate this Year's Tour - Cav with stage wins, Wiggo with the yellow jersey. Cancellara can have the yellow for a little while, but Wiggo will have it by Day 14 I reckon.

He's only ridden three stages in his TDF career - but with two wins to his name already, I've heard some people say that he could break Cav's eventual record for stage wins (providing he carries on and passes Eddy Merckx).

I only follow cycling for the Tour, so hadn't heard of him until now - but what a first impression!

I know diddly squat about bike racing, but what is it about the stupidity of French cycling fans that makes them run out onto the road where the bikes are racing? Am I missing something here?

As well, what about the stupidity of the photographer who caused the crash the other day? I don't condone violence, but clocking he took from someone in the crowd was well deserved.

I guess barriers along the entire race route is more of a necessity than originally thought.

Former Armstrong Team Mates (US Postal) Leipheimer, Hincapie , Van der Velde etc. admits Doping while Lance won the Tour 7 Times. If this is true and Lance was also involved ( i have no doubts) he will probably lose all Tour Titles.

Some Years ago most of the members of the opponent Team Telekom from Germany also admits Doping in a big style ..excepted 1997 Tour Winner and multi Times 2nd/3rd Jan Ullrich ...he never admits Doping even there was big rumours. Ullrich never was caught for Doping though..only body of evidence is a list from the spaniard Doping Doc Fuentes.

i ll post a link if i find something....
