Sky have WAG (wife and girlfriend) WAR on Twitter. Click the link – read the story – it’s better than a doping scandal.
Out of nowhere Barreda found a spare wheel – and used it for some smack down on Costa. The two fell to the ground right after this photo was taken and traded fists-in-faces until they were pulled apart. Now that’s racing!
Sadly I read the news today that Lance Armstrong is truly calling this his last year in the Tour de France. Understandably, it takes its toll year after year. I assume that George Hincapie may follow. No matter the outcome, it’s certainly going to be a lively 2010 race. Much more lively than the white ball event going on in South Africa. Nothing against sports with little white pills that are chased around – mind you. BTW #Germany.
Ok then. Viva la Tour!
Fans are crazy in World Cup play – but nothing compares to the Tour. Nothing. Imagine 1,000,000 people lining an Alp climb …. with the ability to touch some of the most important athletes on the planet. Now imagine for moment the crazed fans of World Cup play having that kind of access …. ha! The fights resulting from opposing teams would outflank many military units.Think about it.
Watch the Tour. See the suffering. Feel the pain. Witness the drama. Only then will you know what real athletes experience on game day. Oh sorry, 20 days straight. In fact, with one prologue event and 20 stages, the 2010 Tour will cover a total distance of 2,263 miles. Their average speed will approach 26mph. Whew. The “not worthy” phrase will be echoed again and again long after the Tour concludes in late July.
Viva la Tour.
The Tour is coming and trust me, it will be bigger than the game being played in South Africa. Sure, I recognize the world is watching the games in South Africa, but it has none of the human suffering or drama of the Tour. In just a few days it begins. Viva la Tour.
