Yes, it is too early to crow, but it sure brings some of us joy. That's especially so with the performance of the American teams.

Other then a more interesting race design, the Versus presentation seems a lot slicker this year. Also, the commercials seem shorter and fewer, but I could be mistaken as I fast forward. Did NBC buy versus or just the TdF rights? NBC seems to have improved things.

It's going to be tough for Contador. It appears his team is not very strong, he's way back and he did the Giro and that may tell in the third week.
