OK. First things first. God bless coffee!!!!!!!
I tried. I really did. I honestly thought that I'd be able to resist the TdF this year. I've been nothing but disgusted with the constant doping reports. The high and mighty attitudes of the governing bodies. All of it had pretty much turned me off on pro road cycling. I thought.
I managed to not watch the prologue. That's not really much of a feat though. Next thing you know, I'm reading about Robbie McEwen's awesome sprint to win stage 1 and the next thing you know I'm flipping channels to VS. like my life depended on it. Damn, that guy is f----ng fast!!!!!!!!!! Then Cancelleras win in the stage on teusday. WOW!!!!! I'm hooked. I can't help it. I just keep my fingers crossed that no major scandals come from this. Sports and "sports entertainment" have just been way to depressing lately. I'm hoping this years race can stand out as what bike racing can and should be. Plus I want it to shove it in the face of the "journalists" who call for a boycott of bike racing because of the doping scandals then fall all over themselves over Barry Bonds and baseball.
Hope everybody is having a great week and getting a lot of hours in bikewise. later folks.
