    Without a breakaway, the TDF would pretty much suck to me.

    Lets face it, take away the few morons that think they can out run 165 drafting riders and it wouldnt be any fun lol.

    I know that they try for the sprint bonuses but if they had one stage that no one broke away, it would be really boring.

    Stage 7 is coming (HILLS!) and then Stage 15 is where the dookie is really gonna hit the fan blades!

    All these sprinters will be sucking hind tit.

    Im proud to say that I have watched EVERY STAGE!~ Thanks to the midnight- 2:30 am show.

    I love some break-aways too. 'Specially the one a few years ago that the Race leader joined because he was cheesed off at one man in the group. "Either he drops back into the peloton or I stay here and the other GC teams will chase you down immediately, ending the break-away."

    Those "morons" who think they can out run 165 drafting riders? Sometimes those "morons" do stay away. Sometimes those "morons" end up in green or yellow from the bonus seconds they earn. Sometimes these breaks are the biggest day in these "morons" cycling career.

    Unreal the crap people will spew here.

    Also, some of them get bonus money from their sponsors for break-away camera time. In addition, some towns have prizes for the first rider through, which is always fun even though you never really hear about it.

    Just wonder what was so nice about that stage? It was a disgrace from Armstrong...what did he say again?"...This man is bad for cycling..." Of course, "this man" had been the only one who testified and told the truth about Ferrari's behaviour...

    Good choice of a "breakaway stage".

    I prefer the guts (or in Spanish "cojones" and French "couilles" ) of guys like Jacky Durand, who won stages in Tour de France after 100, 130, 150 kilometres of breakaway.

    Just to show I do not deny Armstrong's talent, his breakaway under the rain in Oslo at the World Championships in 1993 was among the greatest feats I saw in professional cycling.

    But please give me a break with Big Daddy's behaviour at the Tour against Simeoni...
