Me three! Watched the whole thing yesterday; this is great TV. And, @montclairbobbyb, like Ford vs Ferrari, it's even engaging enough for people (like me) who don't follow any form of racing, motor or leg-powered.

On that subject, I really didn't know who had won the 2022 TdF, or if someone had mentioned it earlier in some long ago thread, I'd forgotten. So I concur with people here who wish there hadn't been a Spoiler among us.

I've watched pro cycling on TV and now online since I had a mind to, back to the Lemond days and the RAAM on ABC Wide World of Sports every Saturday afternoon. These days I'll watch any cycling and all sorts of sports around the world for that matter, given the right timing. I really like the European IBU Biathlon and FIS Cross Country ski races in the winter, as well as the Cyclocross circuit. I don't care who wins as while I know everyone's name, I don't know jack about them in real life and I never will. I rather like to watch it all for the imagery, the scenery, the people, the whole drama unfolding. That's all more interesting.

This is a thread about the 2022 Tour, and it's OVER, HISTORY, IN THE RECORD BOOKS. If we're not encouraged to freely discuss the race from start to finish, then this ISN'T a true open forum. Imagine if this was a forum about Football, and while discussing the 2023 Superbowl someone gets blasted for sharing that the Chiefs won (oops I did it again!)... NO SPOILERS here, and please, no more whiners.

I exist! Although to be honest it's more a memory problem and a very busy job that I couldn't remember who won. There was nothing to get over, if it's more than a fortnight after the end of the race it's not a spoiler!

Howza about dropping it? I missed the Tour last year and guess what? I don't care who wins, it's how they win.
