This is an epic Tour.

Jan showed true sportsmanship, as as Lance in the past.

No matter whoever wins, they have both increased their stature as Great Champions.

The sportsmanship these guys showed today was amazing. What a great day for cycling... Name another sport in which you would see that kind of attutide and display?

I don't have kids, but if I did, I would sit them down and watch this race and show them what true sportsmans and heroes are...
the other sport would be golf.........cohenfive

hey, i was just pointing out that golf is another physical endeavor where competitors at the highest level show a degree of respect for each other as well as the endeavor itself.

not that there is any trash talking, drugs or any other bad behavior among pro cyclists....

Well, if you're going to mention golf, I guess we need to mention bowling too. :P

Or maybe, horse shoes...

How true. We're witnessing the best of the best. Let's hope the rest of the sporting world sits up and takes notice.
