With all the talk and articles in the past year about which are the toughest sporting events. The Tour(Cycle racing) being argued as one of the hardest.
What is it going to say if Tyler Hamilton finishes on the podium with 2 breaks in his collar bone.
I can hear the cycling nay sayers already making comparisons or negative statements about how tough can it be? if a guy who has a collar bone break, can finish or challenge for the top spot.

why do you even give a second of your brainwaves to that stupid article by that idiot USA Today writer and his cronies.

C'mon you know what's real. Don't waste your time. Why diminish the greatness of the tour and the magnitude of Tyler's effort and suffering.


p.s. sorry about being harsh. you probably don't even agree with that article. you brought it up though :O

It's all a play on words. Tyler doesn't have a "broken" collarbone - if he did he couldn't ride his bike. He has a CRACKED collarbone - cracked in two places. It's structurally in one piece (still holding his shoulder in place!) and if he can handle the pain he can ride.

...after all, you never hear anyone ask how those guys can play football without a brain. And that's much worse of an injury.

Seboro, you just crossed the line with your football comment. Oh, you were talking about soccer. Never mind.
