    New (temporary?) name for this sub-forum

    "...in Las Vegas where -the electric bills are staggering -the decor hog wild -and the entertainment saccharine -what a golden age -what a time of right and reason -the consumer's king -and unhappiness is treason..."

    No it is because they run all the stages during the day. No night riding.

    I have changed it back due to a couple of complaints. I did find it comical as I really find it funny how butchered the french language is. I don't personally know anything about the specifics of the above change beyond what was told me.

    Cheers,

    Tour de France

    I'm sorry, I didn't want the name changed just because I didn't get the joke. I usually just read through this forum and rarely take part in it myself.

    Bob annoys me to no end, but having him at the Tour is still funny. He was a good racer, and is a very smart analyst..but his redneck commentary style....jeez...It used to make me just CRINGE whenever I would hear his purposeful butchering of "TOUR DAY FRANCE", but after a while it was comical...and now his trademark..

    He is not butchering it because he doesn't know any better...He does it because he DOES know better. Funny

    Come on change the name back
