I watched the last few minutes of this yesterday and immediately started thinking: how many of the feckers could you take out if you lobbed a half-brick into the middle of the peloton as they came steaming down the Champs Elysees?
I saw on TV Lance Needle in my Arm Strong with a glass of Champagne. I hope the generous donor dosed it up with enough steroids to kill a cow that would take the smirk off his face at the after race drugs test
I'd be tempted to shove a stick in the spokes as they pass, it takes a little more skill with timing and accuracy but worth it when it buckles the wheel and sends the knobber skidding along the Champs Elysees!
Any bloke who shaves his legs to gain an aerodynamic advantage should be taken round the back and bum burgled by a bunch of bikers sporting chaps and handle bar moustaches
Right. I'll stand up for Armstrong. He beat a frikkin serious bout of cancer (40% chance of surviving) and has just broken all Tour records for repeatedly winning.
The French don't like him for winning their race over & over, so that goes in his favour.
He is officially the most drug tested man in cycling and he has never even looked like failing one, so BlackHand can get back in his box.
Yes, it looked a bit 'Formula 1', but the bloke came back from near death, rose to the top and stayed there. WTF do you need to respect a sportsman?
So, does this mean that you lot will be entering L'Etap de Tour next year and showing us how it's done? This year's public stage covered 148 miles and included 4 climbs of up to 1600 metres. Plus, if any of you have Sheryl Crow waiting at the finish line to rub ralgex onto your calves then I'll double your sponsor money.
