Tour Starts July 4th!

The Tour starts on July 4th, with coverage once again being handled by Versus Network! Although Tomac doesn't make a road bike, I'm willing to bet that if they did, Backbone's very own Bert Blanchette would jump in to the race and show those boys what a drug-free ass-whuppin' would look like. Bert has ridden several passes along the TDF route, timing himself against the peloton. He actually had staggeringly fast times of L'Alpe d'Huez, coming in well inside the Tour time limit. H e actually did it alone, too, no domestiques to drag him up the hill! Anyhow, while the rest of America is watching fireworks in the backyard, I'll be glued to the set in the hopes that Contador takes what rightly belongs to him..the Yellow Jersey!
