I'd much rather read than write so it's not much of a blog...

What I Did On My 'Vacation'

Well. This year Versus finally made The Tour available online. I bought a pass for the whole thing and got a great picture when I hooked up the MacBook to the TV. I don't care for the Versus commentators, particularly Paul Sherwen, so I listened to David Harmon and Sean Kelly on EuroSport.

I was sorry to see my favorite rider, Oscar Pererio, abandon early on but I was happy to see Franco Pellizotti win the polka dot jersey.

And the tour went through the Val d'Aosta this year on a gorgeous day with great visibility. Merci Versus.
