Anyone watching? Even with all of the scandals, I still find myself drawn to the race. This year is especially entertaining with such a wide open field. There are four or five guys with a real chance of winning.

Also, I applaud the Tour for its all out assault on cheaters. If a rider gets caught, it is very likely that you will never see them again. Imagine if baseball did the same. We would be out a lead-off hitter...
