    TDF Stats!

    I'm watching some of the TDF and enjoying it but being an American obsessed with sports stats I'm dying to know what a particular segment of roads' grade is or how fast a rider is going up or down at any given time etc.More technical ,statistical commentary would add alot for me.Even the rules aren't explained enough for me.Anyone else feel similarly?

    If you are an amateur cyclist you don't really want to know the pros stats because they will just make you realize how pathetic you are. At least that is true for me.

    It's 'dying' . . . . as in 'dying to go to pro'.

    Phil & Paul, while pioneers of American broadcasts of cycling, leave alot to be desired if you actually understand the sport.

    Instead, give EuroSport a try. You can usually find it through www.steephil.tv on an English broadcast. WHile they also cover a some basics, they also have some good conversations.

    Visit The C-Blog : the blog about cycling.
