HELP ME GET ALEX ZULLE AND FERNANDO ESCARTIN INTO THE TOUR!!BAi9302010

(I thought I'd post this again to make sure everyone read it. Also, forward it to as many people as you can, because the more emails they get, the better):

I know it's a long shot, but I'm a huge Zulle fan, so I thought I'd try making one of those chainmail letters like Specialized did for Cipollini to try and get team Coast into the TDF. Also, if anyone can make a better translation into French than mine (I used the Altavista translator), please post it.-thanks
Just copy this letter and send it to (and forward it to as many of your friends, etc. as you can) mail@letour.fr :

To whom it may concern (Le Tour Organizers):
I beg that you reconsider inviting Team Coast to Le Tour this year. I am aware of the fact that Team Coast is not ranked high in the UCI team rankings, but with the abscence of Jan Ullrich and other major contenders, it would be sad to see great riders such as Alex Zulle and Fenando Escartin excluded from the start list. With this said, I hope that you change your mind and give Lance Armstrong some real challengers, so that we do not have another boring race.
Thank You

French:

À qui de droit (Le Tour Organizers):
Je prie que vous reconsidérez d'inviter la côte d'équipe à Le Tour cette année. Je me rends compte du fait que la côte d'équipe n'est pas rangée haut dans les rangs d'équipe d'UCI, mais avec l'abscence de janv. Ullrich et d'autres compétiteurs principaux, il serait regrettable de voir de grands cavaliers tels qu'Alex Zulle et Fenando Escartin exclu dès le début la liste. Le ceci étant dit, j'espère que vous changez d'avis et donne à lance Armstrong quelques vrais challengeurs, de sorte que nous n'ayons pas des autres course étant ennuyeuse.
Merci

Call me an idiot, but if I organized the Tour of USA I would make damned sure Klasna and Horner were invited as well. The French are just looking out for their own. We can sit around and debate how it is not fair that the French don't select the best riders in the world(even though most in debate are on shitty ranked teams), but they can pick whoever they want and a bunch of chain letters ain't gonna do much good.
I AGREE... ENOUGH ALREADY!!! IT SUCKS! GET OVER IT! nmt-bill
