I'm a little sceptical about this one -- I'd always been led to believe that the internet is used only by hairy-palmed teens double-clicking their way through puberty, so I expected something more along the lines of .... well, maybe Britney Spears does make sense after all. If this is true, it's kinda cool that a bike race is the ONLY sporting event that made Google's top ten.
