The Tour, Baby!

1 07 2006

Today is the start of the Tour de France. As I was looking forward to watching the competition between Jan Ulrich and Ivan Basso, I learned that only yesterday had both been suspended from their teams for possible drug use. Not good.

However, all the Americans are still in it, and I’m hoping Lance’s leutenant, George Hincappie can find the will to continue the American streak and make it 8 years with someone from team USPS/Discovery at the top of the podium. It would also be great for a guy with a career like his to finally ride away with the yellow jersey; he deserves it.

Go George.
