Never miss the TDF,not sure about Armstrong,been out of the saddle a few years and his recent injury will have hampered his training.

I just hope there are no drugs this year,takes all the headlines away from those riders who are clean and are naturally good sportsmen.....

Used to cycle around 40 miles a day myself a few years ago,age as caught up with me though lol

I have a 12 gear racer and 18 gear mountain bike,not sure why I got a mountain bike seeing as Lincolnshire is as flat as a witches tit

Will have to get them out and get this flab off...

I just hope that it is a close race,don't like when one rider gets a huge lead early on and it then just to see who can claim second

Excellent racing so far,Monday's breakaway by the Cavendish group was awesome and yesterdays Astana team time trial to close the gap on the leader was racing at it's best.Just hope it continues and that drugs are not an issue.

The only problem Astana will have is sorting out the number one rider,there are three possibly four if Leipheimer gets his act together soon,to chose from and I don't think Armstrong will want to play domestique for anyone after his seven wins...

My brother still loves his bike and his cycling,also watching the Tour de france and the Tour of Britain etc...These guys are supreme athletes and very underated with sponsorship etc.. With cycling anywhere in the region of 150 miles a day most consecutive days this is a truly gruelling sport..All the best to them...
