Anyone speak French? It'd be great to know how some of these names should be pronounced. Sometimes Phil will say Vo-kler, sometimes he'll say Voy-kler. Same thing for Virenque. Va-Ronk or Va-Rank?

Voeckler is hard to describe in a phonetic way. It's similar to Vo-kler. Virenque is more of a Veh-ronk than Va-ronk.

Both Lance Armstrong and Frankie Andreau pronunce the Tour de France as one word: tourdefrance with no emphsis on any syllable.
