    For those who DON'T think it's all about teams, then why do I see at the end of every stage, the gofers suddenly stop pedalling about 1/4 or 1/2 mile from the end and let "Lance+Cadel" go by??
    You can go watch some other sport b/c clearly you don't know WTF you are talking about. They DO have a team time trial in most TdFs. Nobody stops pedaling to let "Lance and Cadel" (retro-much? maybe you've been asleep for a few years? And maybe you don't know that the GC riders are seldom in front during a bunch finish?) "go by". They ease off after the've blown up bringing Mark, Peter, and Marcel to the line. (And, off topic, but it really looks like the future belong to Marcel.)

    No they don't have a team pack TT event that I have ever seen. It's all run individually. Adding up team numbers is not the same as team group pursuit like at the track. A bunch of guys have won 5 in a row and you don't think it's FIXED. LOL

    Soccer/futbol is such a stupid sport. You have 4-5 guys trying to score, and the other half of the team is not even close to the goal trying to help. They are way back in the middle of the field standing around ... lazy bums.

    Did you ever watch American football ?? The have a defensive team & offensive team. The guys are too lazy to play both positions .... jeeesh

    Car racing. The engineers do all the work, and the driver gets all the credit for pressing on a gas pedal ..... anyone can do that !

    Hockey, the guys skate for 60 seconds and then have to stop and let another guy have a turn ... are they so out of shape they can't play for more than a minute ?!

    You're very amusing. Were you sent here by the troll angels? Surely you have something better to do. Why don't you watch this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN56643ik_Q

    Well, you've got us there, because whereas we don't think the RACE is fixed, the GUY who won it 7 times in a row sort of was. In more ways than one, I suppose.
