and thought you guys might like to see a few of my pics. I watched Alpe D'Huez at corner 7 with the Dutch fanatics. All I can say is "WOW"! Those guys know how to party!

1. Does Dietre the Devil have really offensive BO as is the rumor?

2. Did you write up a story about your stay, like how long, why you were there, how you took a pee, etc.

3. You were quite fortunate to have the opportunity to see the 100th Tour live. Not many people on this site have, or ever will see a Tour, or a European race in their lives. This being said, how bad did it suck to have to leave France and not see the rest of the race?

1. Honestly, I didn't notice if his BO was as bad as reported. Of course that could be because I was probably rather "ripe" myself.

2. I haven't written a story on my trip. I was there 8 days with the Breaking Away tour group.

3. It did suck leaving but at least now I can actually follow what's going on. When you are over there it's quite hard to really know how the race is going unless you can understand French. The Eurosport coverage was in either French or German and the newspapers obviously were in French. Since I couldn't read the papers or understand the coverage I felt like I didn't really know what was happening in depth like in the US with all the web stuff and OLN. That said, you CANNOT beat the atmosphere! It was everything I expected and more.
