  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Tour de France by kazzzz on 14 July 2012 2:00pm
Am I the only one here who's addicted to it? July to me means the Tour, absolutely love it.
Saying that, I spend every July exhausted as the live coverage finishes here about 2am, pretty tough when I have Ava and work to attend to! Worth it though

I am not a bike race person, but remember being in France @ this time two years ago, watching the race in a cafe. It was unique to watch the race in it's home nation.

I can't get into bike racing, because all that happens when I get on a bike is that I fall off!

I get into watching it, too, kazzzz. It is amazing to see the rides these guys do, six days a week for three weeks. And on the 'days off' they still pedal a few hundred kilometres.

It was great to see Cadel Evans take the yellow onto the Champs d'Elysee last year. I saw none of it this year. I'll get some tape of a few key stages, but that will be all I see of Le Tour this year.

Watched it when I was in France two years ago, but otherwise, I do not pay attention to it.
