Another killer day at The Tour and bravo to Rui Costa for his 2nd win.

I enjoyed the tripping vid above. There were more than a few fans that needed to be taken down.

Yep, great racing again. It seems like you can really see more people taking it to the limit this year. Maybe less "recovery" medication?

Agree there are too many Borat-kini's this year. Just waiting for one of them to get the atomic wedgie...

Hook a borat hammock on the mirror or one of those motor bikes and its going to be a fruit basket road rash on the road like no other.

Costa wins huh cool lance I'm a f*#king doper Armstrong stole a victory from him on a mountain stage in the alps I believe in 2008.

This is what now really bums me out about the dopers. They stole the dreams of men like Costa who deserved the win but had their glory taken away by a cheater.
Sad.

All out go for it tomorrow no slacking man. Sundays twilight finish will be awesome.

I'm hoping Quintana can hang on to his podium spot. Really promising future for him.

Like Dee said, Bravo to Rui Costa. Two very impressive stage wins.

And yeah, Quintanna is a classy rider for sure.

Chapeau to Chris Froome for hanging tough and taking everything the tour has thrown at him.

Radio Shack has also shown to be riding with panache. Huge kudos to Andreas Klodden, his 2nd place today was amazing.

One thing about today's stage, was when the rain started pouring down, after racing over 2 HC climbs and then 3 first category climbs, I was thinking, I bet hypothermia could really hit some of the riders.

This has been a fantastic Tour.

Gotta love how the moto-cop was pushing the runners out of the way - basically running them off the road...

Sweet!!

Killer day! I have a Colombian friend who bikes ride and he is so excited. This means so much for rider's village and family.

Yes, I've been trying to remember those other Colombians who cranked at the Giro.

OK, I looked it up.

They were Rigoberto Uran (stage 10 win and 2nd place overall) and Carlos Betancur (white jersey and 5th place overall).

Ha, ha . . . Froome gave that guy a pretty good belt with his long skinny arm.

Overall an excellent Tour this year!

Movistar has a legit team and a chance to win the GC if they back Quintana. Contador must surely feel like he's passing the torch.

great tour this year. Corsica was a real treat and there were some great mt. stages. congratulations to Froome and Sky...Richie Porte was really badass and Chris did an admirable job of countering attacks when isolated from his team. His attacking on the time trials and in the Pyrenees won him the race. he is a very special rider, a clean rider and a great ambassador for a clean tour future.

one final thought: tour authorities must do a better job of protecting the riders from crazed fans. it's cool to go nuts anout the sport but when contact with a rider occurs there should be consequences.

Yes, git those psycho fans out o' da' way!


It was a great tour show today. Kittel is "the (new) man." That was where Cav was 5 years ago.

That was a great light show on the "Arch de Triomphe." It was awesome, the 100th Tour was a great success.

I hope Chris didn't eff it all up.

Every year "The Tour" fulfills all our hopes and fears but this year was classic.
