or is this years TDF on the boring side. Lance has done his thing in the mountain .. and only two of them at that ... and now he and the rest of USPS just sit in and hang with the peloton for the rest of the tour. a few other bottom enders scurry for some mountain points or a stage win -- Jaja has the polka dot sewed up and now rushes headlong with a breakaway only to collapse (a foregone conclusion) midway through. there's no excitement here. at least to me. oh for the days when winning the TDF meant going for it on every (or most) stage --- that was excitement. now they have cars to carry your water, cars to bring you new tires, cars to bring you new bikes, radios to carry the messages, --- Eddie Merckx where are you now.
