It's July again and you know what that means - time for the mother of all endurance challenges, the hypnotically beautiful yet grueling Tour de France. The pageantry and tradition and spirit never fail to captivate me. Read all about it in The Cycling News and watch the action unfold live on OLN tv. It's too bad that Italy's Warrior, Michele Bartoli, is out of the race after fracturing his pelvis in the first stage of the Giro d'Italia (read more on his weblog) - I was looking forward to watching him compete. And what about that Armstrong guy - do you think he can do it again?
