    I record the TDF and watch it after la familia goes to bed. I fast forward through commercials and the like and turn off the TV after the top GC contenders finish. FAIL?

    They're always pretty.

    I prefer the green jersey dresses, just my 2 cents

    I feel sorry for the girls that have to wear the polka dot umbrellas! The other outfits are cool or classy. Those poor polka dots girls!

    Also check out their shoes - how weird are those???

    I'm still trying to figure out the material used on those black one-piece numbers the stage winner girls wear. It almost looks like a thin neoprene.

    And yeah...those polka dot umbrellas are funny...don't bend at the waist girls!

    is it the same dresses after each stage? I've only seen one presentation so far (Chavanel's). I don't remember the polka-dots being quite like the pic above, more like a parasol than an actual rain umbrella...

    The green jersey PGs wore like white sleeveless jumpsuits w/ a green belt.

    Look at that picture, Benard Hinault and Eddy Merckx seem to be having a good laugh too, so it's cool! Let them laugh, they just don't know what it's all about.

    It's bad luck to put those dresses on indoors, yes? Oh for a strong gust of wind

    They're the fools! This is how pro sports teams celebrate here when they win the championship.

    Compare that to this, which was just for winning one stage!

    I know which one I'd prefer.

    Leave it to Versus to have an entire page devoted to the podium girls...here.

    SFW - Just say "I'm checking out the winers of the stages".

    Well...with the lycra, you could be talking about the riders...not that there's anything wrong with that.
