Yep all set. Major couch time planned. Put a couple TAB bets on. Also there is a competition to pick a virtual team http://www.ifarm.nl/tdf/

Yep. If it's the same as previous years, I'll record the 'last five hours' programme each day then get up and watch all of that. Love it. Four Kiwis this year with George Bennett a reasonable chance for a stage win - after his Tour of California win a couple of months ago. Strangely only three Americans.

 

Edit: After checking it seems this year it's 'last two hours' and showing later in the morning so I'll just record all of each stage.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Sounds like fun - I'll take a tenner of that. Will be my first ever TAB bet.

Don't want to take the discussion off track (doping discussion etc), but this is a really candid interview with Lance Armstrong that most of you wouldn't have seen.

Watching these guys in the wet gives me the heebies -I keep cringing every time I see them hanging it out while going over painted lines!

 

Hopefully some dry running through Luxembourg tonight.

It kinda felt we've eased into it with the first few stages.

 

Just finished catching up on Stage 4 - looking forward to the mountains in Stage 5.

 

Just as an aside - what feeds are you watching?  I'm watching SBS feed with Phil and Paul, but have been enjoying David Millar on ITV as well - good info and insight from him.
