It was a sad day yesterday, the Tour De France ended and for the first time I actually watched almost every stage. I didn't watch every minute of every stage but I caught the highlights and kept up with all of the action. I can't believe I missed so much back when Lance was in his prime but I guess I'll just have to settle for the flashback moments. Melinda actually kept up with the Tour more than I did but she also hasn't worked in almost 2 months. This weekend she was at a conference in Gatlinburg for work and she and several of her co-workers went out for dinner and she had the bartender switch the TV over to the Tour while they were there. I would have loved to see the look on all the other ladies faces when she made that request. She said they were a bit confused by her interest in it.
Although Lance didn't win I feel he still rode amazingly for the age difference between him and the other riders and his time away from the sport. I can't wait to see what happens next year when he has his own team and there is no question of who the leader will be. I was really surprised when he announced Radio Shack is going to be the sponsor, I haven't seen a Radio Shack in a long time.
I am excited to see what happens at the Leadville 100 next month, I heard a Rumor that Lance and Landis will be in attendance to challenge Weins for the title. That should be a good race!
