    I don't know why but my dvr keep switching back to the VS. channel and recording "cycling", ala Tour De France.

    I don't even understand the rules except get to the finish line first at the very end and win.

    But I find myself getting caught up in it..


    Anyone else dabble in cycling?

    I look at this hump these cats are climbing and I'm like holy shit, what kind of shape must it take to do that!

    I worked for a high end cycling website, cyclists are nut bags.

    A Pinerello frame for a fucknig bicycle can cost 10 grand or more. I assembled a Pinerello Campagnollo frame and setup with all the bells and whisles for 20 grand.

    For a godamn bike. Oh and one of those shirts from astana? 60-180 bucks.

    My brother always watches the Tour de France, as does my uncle.

    I personally cannot sit and watch people ride bikes for days on end.

    Once again it's time for the greatest athletes on the planet to compete in one of the greatest sporting events of the year.

    You guessed it. It's Tour De France time.
    Chris Froome going for his fifth win.
    2200 miles of racing in 21 days of racing and two rest days.

    I've been working everyday, I,ve watched intermittently so overall I don't know.
    But the finishes are almost always close, hard fought battles to the line.
