Tour de France

It was sweet. Memories of summers in France in the hot afternoons. The TV stations carry the Tour de France live without commercials from noon till the end of the stage. Several helicopters and all the motorcycle cameras gave me an unprecedented view of the insides of the race. But the best was always watching Lance conquer mountains and time trials, team events and solo performances. The guy was/is a monster on a bike. And he was an American!
So this morning after breakfast and the NYT's, I casually flipped on TV to the station that carries the Tour to find myself watching Lance again, pouring through the hills of Monaco, no commercial breaks, just Lance grinding up the clock and carving his way around corners. I have no idea how the rest of the time trial will go, but it was just like being back in France. Summer is good!
