2014 Tour de France


#1

The Tour kicks off this Saturday (July 5th)!

Who’s going to be watching with me???

Who will take the win? Froome? Contador? Schleck?

It will be televised on NBC Sports! Check it out.

Oh god…I had forgotten about it

Between the Tour, the World Cup, AP and the most important European anime convention, I won’t be able to catch my breath this week-end


#3

I am envious of how much better European coverage of cycling is than in the US. You guys have all the fun…


#4

I am so excited for it. I shall watch it forever, and ever, and ever


#5

This was a crazy first stage. Cavendish went down HARD on the sprint finish. He also did the same thing last year though… I’m sure he’ll be back tomorrow (nevermind. He’s dislocated his collarbone…) it sucks but that is a risk of being a sprinter. It was a nice win for the big German of Shimano/Giant.


Check out a gif of the crash:


#6

Gosh, that was depressing. I felt so bad for him. His dream was to finish in le Tour de France not last at least. So sad


#7

I was a bit disappointed Nairo Quintana isn’t racing the Tour this year, but I guess not that many contenders do both the Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France. I’m looking forward to seeing him back in the Tour again.

I was pulling for Andy Schleck, but now it looks like he is out as well.
