Very cool. It would be cooler if they broke down each stage too.

Koffee, if you look closely there's all sorts of subsections within each stage. Sprint point markers, climbing points markers, etc.

Yeah, I know. Just something for each stage on each day would be nice. With the stage profile jpeg side by side with google earth, it would be really cool.

We were in Strasbourg (this years prologue/host city) last year about 4 weeks before the tour started. That is one shweeeeeet city. Being on the border, when we couldn't speak French they thought we spoke German and vice-versa. Two days later we drove to the Black Forest on part of the route for Stage 8, Pforsheim-Gerardmer and stopped in Appenweier where I picked up my "Offizielles Programm" of the 2005 TDF. Then, when Team Discovery was in town for training late last year I got 4 signatures in the program: Tom Danielson, Pavel Padrnos, Jose Azevedo and Johan Bruyneel. Of course, I didn't get to ride with Lance like ONE of our BFrs did!
