Fuck soccer. That flopping around shits so lame. And I'm an American. A real sport to me is something more like the subtle art of bike racing. The month-long bicycling Super Bowl (AKA The Tour de France) is fast approaching. I'm checking the route this morning and notice something super rad....they climb the gnarly Toumalet two times from both sides. Like a Col de Tourmalet double penetration. Both of these massive days of climbing will be wedged around a rest day (AKA The Taint) so there should be some epic dueling. And it's happening on stages 17 and 18, right before the final time trial. That means the contenders will have to throw everything at the climbs to still be in the hunt during the time trial. No sandbaggin. Every rider is REALLY gonna need their performance enhancing drugs big time. Especially Old Man Armstrong. Oh geez. The final week is gonna be so sick, I'm about to get my O-Face just thinking about all this.
