Le Tour Begins

Thor Hushovd - Wearing the yellow jersey

The Tour is here and it’s big. This will be the second Grand Tour I’m following after the Giro last month. I came away from the watching the Giro absolutely loving every second. But the Tour is something else. It’s big, really big. The Giro was Contador’s show. He totally owned it and only Nibali and Scarponi were anywhere near challenging him. It seemed so small compared to the Tour and pales in comparison. Today, there are over a dozen proper GC contenders and it’s impressive to see all these stars battling it out.

I’m excited waking up to watch it at 6:30ish every morning and when I wake up too early I’m disappointed that it’s not yet time! I’m watching it at Tourdefrance.nbcsports.com. It’s in HD, looks fantastic and cost $30. Not bad when it ends up being $10/week!
