lol why? I'd be more interested if they would just stop pretending the sport is clean and just go all out enhanced performance.

I wanna see the 6 million dollar man go for it.

It's about time a sport embrace modern science completely.

Anybody know what's the good internet website for live video coverage? If NBC is all there is, it might be pathetic, like the Olympics coverage. But maybe Phil Liggett is calling the race, which would be cool.

This should turn out to be an interesting Tour.
Sky.... Two leaders?
Contador?

This should be a fun Tour.

Sky only has 1 leader. Froome. Wiggins is out and judging by his recent comments won't be trying to win the Tour ever again.

See what I mean!
Wiggo's out.
Thanks for the update.
Wiggins...."ever again" (?)
Wow, never heard of a TDF champ doing that. Now I'm really interested to see if the performance of team Sky is as dominating as last year.

I was wondering if that Canadian trucker who took out the Skagit River bridge had found himself another job yet.



Apparently, he's driving busses in Corsica now. Saw him on TV this morning.

Chaz...I think he's starring on that frozen lake trucker series on discovery channel...Leon Spinks is his driving partner and sometimes throws a few jabs......RJ

I figured he got some kind of Canadian award for taking out U.S infrastructure without to much harm to people.

If you spent much time driving in Canuckalhead land you would not think much of this.

I love Canada & Canadians, but there driving I don't know.

You haven't lived on the edge until you've driven on Vancouver Island.
Makes driving in LA look very tame.

Now, back yer regularly scheduled flaming.

Are they still having that thing? I mean, now that it's merely a joke and all?

NBC/Versus has an iOS app that pretty much fully live streams each stage and you can play them back later. It's $14.99 and I used it last year. It was pretty good. There may be an Android version as well.

I just realized this morning this thing has started! Kids keeping me extra busy this summer!

Got get my game on.

You guys talking about HWNSNBS*?

Would someone post a link to a site offering good live coverage? Went to Velonews but didn't see much...

Hard to get excited about a sport where everyone rides under a cloud of suspicion.
