Le Tour

It's about to begin.

No Armstrong this year.
The race should be different and more exciting.
Riders are racing to win this year, not come in second or try to beat Armstrong.

However, it seems that some of the favorites are not using their brains.

I was looking forward to an epic battle between Ivan Basso, Jan Ullrich, Francisco Mancebo, Jose Beloki and Oscar Sevilla. As it stands right now, none of those guys will be in le Tour.

I'm pulling for George Hincapie. Hincapie loves the Paris Roubaix and was instrumental in Armstong's victory last year.

Hopefully with the drama between some of the past top performers lost due to doping le Tour will still be a splendid and motivating event.

Keeping my fingers crossed...,
