    I hate

    Rest days.

    I feel like a junky all strung out looking for a fix. I keep re-listening to old interviews and watching extended highlight reels of each stage hoping I will hear something different or the results will change. But alas...nothing new.

    I wish Versus would do a good show on rest days, not just re run extended portions of the last week's racing.

    A rest day show with interviews, features, analysis, predictions, and selected shorter highlight clips to illustrate points, would be nice, as oppossed to just cutting and pasting long clips of what we've already seen.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    Agree, it's quite depressing.

    Yeah, their rest day coverage needs work...but otherwise i think they do a good job.

    So glad we dont have to see those Saab commercials anymore.

    We're so spoiled. I made this from one of my old VHS tapes... rest day silliness.

    Just wait until the tour ends. I think BF is going to set up a Tour Junkie/groupie support group after the tour ends this year. Maybe even a special chat room for group therapy. You may have to be a premium member to get in.

    What I do on rest days is head over to Youtube and watch some of the best stages from past Tours.

    When the Tour is over we still have The Vuelta to look forward to. A lot of the contenders that were injured in the first week will be in The Vuelta, so it should be a pretty good field.

    That or it would be nice if Cervelo actually came out with more of those. They still only have the tour of california part one on there.

    I get depressed every day at 10AM when there's nothing cool to do for another 20 hours. Is there any way we can get these lazy punks to do three stages a day?
