Le Tour de France
Posted by Gordon Smith

On Saturday one of my favorite summer rituals commences. Le Tour de France is laboring under the weight of recent drug scandals -- Floyd Landis' long challenge may finally be over and Michael Rasmussen just won compensation of $1 million, even as he was being banned for two years -- but the Tour remains a great spectacle. And I love rising in the morning to the sound of Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen calling the race. Here's a classic moment that caused me to jump out of my chair when I saw it live ...

I have been in Europe for the race, but unless you are actually at the stage, it's just not as fun as watching at home. For one thing, the race happens during the afternoon over there, but I have come to prefer the Tour over breakfast.
