I don't think there's any question on who is going to win it. Contador can't be beat.

I'm hoping either Levi, Andy Schleck, or Cadel finally win one...but Contador is still the guy to beat. Wiggins will probably be on the podium too.

I literally turned it on for 2 minutes, randomly. Some guy was standing on the edge of the road, right side, with his back to the riders, shoulder and arm in the way of the riders. Some rider clipped him and about 40 went down

I always watch as much of the TDF as I can. Scenery is always cool.

Yeah... the "man in black" comment got me chuckling when the announcers said that today. The wrecks were nuts. Should be a good race this year!

I'm usually watching every stage but I've been lazy this year and I've missed most of them

I'm ashamed.

Ah, yeah,

Vinokourov involved in crash and probably broke hip

http://news.yahoo.com/tour-rest-day-...220447119.html


I see a lot of riders going into ditches this year. I wonder if this course is more narrow or has steeper dropoffs on the side of the road that in the past. I have never seen anything this bizarre. I didn't think I would say this but, it seems like the mountains will be where things 'settle down. '

wow what a crazy stage yesterday, that first huge crash couple big names out of the tour then the car hitting the leaders!! nuts.

Did you see the quote from the announcer when they said that the peloton was a womping 12minutes faster this year to one of the checkpoints then last year! Technology or these guys are just getting that much faster this year. insane. Shaping out to be a great tour this year!
