    2013 TdF Jibber Jabber

    Three Canadians in it this year. GC hopes are slim but stage wins are a possibility.

    Here's a nice little analysis piece from VeloNews to get you all primed and ready: There’s more to the 100th Tour de France than a tough last week.

    Let the games begin!

    I predict,

    - there will be 2 PED scandals.

    - a general strike of some kind

    - the French will continue the fine tradition of not winning the race.

    But surely Thomas Voeckler will have an epic ride up at least one mountain.

    I believe Phil Liggett would call that reaching into his suitcase of courage.

    I am ready for the tour to start, I've just picked my Fantasy Tour Team!

    The only problem is that I'm busier this year at work so I won't be able to watch the tour on steephill "in the background" while I work.

    What are my options to watch on demand? I don't have cable. Has anyone used cycling.tv? Does it show the entire stages or just recaps? What about nbc? Will that work for us lowly Canadians? ...I do have vpn.

    p.s. Go Ryder!

    It's going to be fun to watch Cav and Sagan duke it out.

    ... and Contador FTW.

    I still "watch" the Tour the old-fashioned way. I read the live updates on VeloNews and/or CyclingNews (which are also easy to follow on my phone when I'm traveling) and then watch the summary at night on TSN2.

    Of course Greipel's great but, I love the aforementioned for their attitudes as much as their skills.

    Yes, part of the fun of following top sprinters is the prima donna 'tude. They usually try to mask it and put up the nice front for team PR, but it's always under there lurking just under the surface.

    The GC guys, on the other hand, are always playing the "tranquilo" card. Except maybe for the Cobra, who didn't seem to have read the PR handbook. ;-)

    Wow. What a disaster this has shaped up to be. Not a good way to kick off the 100th.

    Post race interviews will be interesting.

    For those wondering...it appears that the NBC coverage is available both live and on demand with a VPN.

    Oh yeah, that was a $hit show.

    Orica Green Wedge......

    I didn't come up with that, apparently there is a photo-caption contest going on.

    Tour De France: Hesjedal Tired Of "getting Crashed" | Cyclingnews.com

    It looked like the sponsor banner that caused the 'Ryder group' crash was on the road. The peleton is riding along and and the they have to move over. Not sure why they didn't just put it on or behind the yellow curb.

    I'm not too sure about these hipster glasses Ryder is wearing in the tour this year. Can he pull them off?

    I guess its not Ryder's year. Hopefully he'll be back with better luck, better form and better glasses.

    I've got TSN2 with Bell, but they're showing a rebroadcast or a summary at night as well (I have to keep deleting duplicate recordings in my PVR). Usually around 10 pm or so?

    It's looking like a REALLY good day for Sagan so far!
