They have all stopped watching or even checking the news. No American in the top 3 or touted as the clear favorite = Boring.
Don't kill me I'm only the messenger. Personally I think it is a great Tour, one with the potential to be one of the best of all time, especially considering the historical context. My huge hope is leaving the age of Armstrong will turn out like leaving the age of Anquetil. Going from cold second counting calculation to wild stages with swings of 5 minutes plus on individual stages. If it can be like the Age of Merckx, except without a dominant rider cycling just might become popular in the U.S.
