Tour de France excitement...

One of the best tours I've seen in years. I've been watching every summer for 20 years since my first one in the summer of 1992 in Vienna thanks to it being broadcast all those years in Europe. We even saw a few days of the TDF in France while vacationing there the summer of 2001, but you don't get to see to much standing on the side of the road as the peleton whizzes by in a few seconds. The television coverage is much more worth the viewing.

Anyway, I'm rooting for Cadel Evans from Australia to let it all out on the time trial tomorrow. It was a shame he had a bike mechanical earlier in the day today and spent all the energy to catch back up, but what a great ride for him the past three days. Tomorrow will tell who can recover and TT the best to grab the win - Andy, Cadel, or Frank?

Lots of drama this year, but lots of fun to watch as well.
