The Tour Rocked

The Tour - as in Tour DAY France (Thanks Bob Roll) - is finally over.  After staying up way too many nights past midnight to watch the "expanded coverage", complete with expanded commercials - I can now get some sleep.

With the return of Lance, the Astana super team - complete with Contador and Lance vying for team lead - the Schleck brothers and Cavendish - the fastest sprinter ever, was a great tour to watch.  Gotta wonder what Lance held back as to not attack team mate Contador.

In any case, Contador deserved to win - he's incredible.  A 3rd place finish for Lance was a great showing, though it seemed weird seeing him on the lower podium.

Next year should be interesting as well, with Lance back again - now with Team RadioShack.  I think every team member scores a 8-track player and clock radio.  No wonder he jumped ship.
