    I'm sure there will be more online. Check http://cyclingfans.com/ and http://www.steephill.tv/ closer once the race starts.

    VS had a contest on Twitter to pick the podium. Here's mine: Andre Greipel, Allan Davis, and Chris Sutton.

    I get 200 channels, but no Versus. Irritating.

    No ****. I called and tried to cancel, but they took so much off my bill that I couldn't turn it down. Switching to Dish would have cost me a bunch more. Guess I'll try to stream off the web. A friend will DVR and let me sling the TdF from him though since he gets Versus. Just gotta try it out.

    Oscar Pereiro came with a good showing for a guy who was going to retire....
    Team SKY dropped the hammer at the end of day 1 and took a 1,2 finish.

    Are there going to be some hills in this years race or is it going to be another sprint/tune-up race for the non sprinters like all the other season starters?

    Columbia dominance of sprint finishes continues into 2010. Wonder if they'll top 80 wins this season.
    Everyone has a right to an opinion. However, this does not mean that one's opinion is right.
