    Tour de Suisse coverage

    Don't know if I mentioned this, but I actually cover pro cycling for SportsFansNews.com

    Thought maybe you guys would want to check out today's story on the rider list for Tour de Suisse that came out today. Shameless plug, I know... but our site can use all the support it can get, and maybe help a bro out?

    here's the link!

    Thanks, everyone... for helping a newbie out! I promise, I'll keep the plugs to a minimum...

    Interesting concept for a site. I'm sure the quality spread is fairly wide.

    Time for an erratum: Cav was not with OPQS last year and was not the rider Farrar chased to a bus. Though who knows who Ferrer got after.

    Sagan wins a stage but it's looking to me like it might turn out to be a "dogfight" between Movistar and BMC. At least I'm hoping for BMC to be an underdog team to shake things up as this progresses.

    PS
    We can't comment on your boxing articles without being on facebook and I'm not on facebook.....What's a Rigondeaux fan to do, lol ?

    Nice job. I've bookmarked the sight and will be following it for the Tour de Suisse. You brought some life into what could be just a boring rundown of the Tour.

    Oh, one thing. IMHO, there's no need to use words that dumb us all down - "Teammates be damned, Cancellara is out to kick all available ass, and take home the title".

    Sagan wins another stage in this today. Top 2 CG places remain the same.
    This young phenom should have quite a future ahead of him.

    Rui Costa wins the last stage and the race.
    Mathias Frank cracked and missed the podium altogether. I've always been interested in this race because it's a climber's race....even though I ain't one. Wish I could've seen this one as it happened because it seemed to be a good one.
