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.
