[SPOILERS] Tour de France
« on: July 07, 2009, 01:18:35 PM »

I used to love following the Tour de France, but, now, not so much.  Still pretty compelling even with all the drug scandals.  Anyone interested this year?

I watch it just for the unlikely thrill of seeing a french rider caught doping

Yep.

Susan and I watch the coverage every year. For me it's an oddly compelling event. I like the strategies/etc. I can't exactly put my finger on it but it does pull me in.

And what Blader said.

It's got all the dullness of NeckCAR without the rednecks. What's not to like?

The weird thing is that I used to watch Tour de France coverage even though it was tape delayed and I already know the results.  There aren't a lot of sports where I'll do that.

Hey!  Grin

I take your point. A NASCAR race takes 3 hours plus or minus. This thing takes a *goshdarn* month, and not a hydrocarbon is generated unless somebody farts in the pack after having The Breakfast Of Death from the other thread.

I watch it a little.  I'll flip over for a bit in between commercials of Bachelorette.
