I'm not a racer and I don't find Le Tour de France to be compelling enough to hold my attention for three weeks. So I didn't tune in until the last couple of days. The crash highlights were macabre and I wish all of those injured a speedy recovery. But I gotta give Laurens ten Dam props for getting back on his back after his crash in stage 14. http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/43828138/ns/sports-cycling/displaymode/1247/beginSlide/35/ A great example of rule 5 in action.
Congratulations to Cadel Evans and to the Schleck brothers.
