I won’t be offering any coverage of the 2007 Tour de France in my blog.
I figure everyone and their mother will be covering it, and besides, I find it to be something of a farce at this point. It will no longer be about who wins, but who wins and passes the drug test. The last time I watched it from start to finish, Greg Lemond was on the way to one of his wins. I also enjoyed Indurain’s reign of terror. But those days are over.
If you ask me, Lance Armstrong really brought cycling to more of America. Sadly, between him and Landis, the words “Doping” and “EPO” have now become household words. And even with all this publicity, my Amgen stock is still in the toilet.
So there you have it. Don’t expect any tour coverage from me, unless something really noteworthy happens. Like an Aussie winning.
