    At the Tour de France *****es

    Anyone watching?...Greatest sporting event on earth.

    Watched the chaos from Mont Ventoux yesterday when Froome tore the race apart and then today cycled up the 21km from Bedoin to the summit in just over 2 hours....unbelievably hard...absolutely don't blame anyone for doping when you experience what they go through..inhuman

    I haven't watched it at all this year. I'm pissed at all these *****es. I swear these wussies are less of a man than soccer players. Now if they allowed unfettered drug use, spiked wheels, and dirty tricks, that would be worth watching.

    And another thing. Why can't they get somebody that speaks american instead of british? I'm sick of listening to that damn brit announcing the race and making it look like these riders are the apex of manhood when it is painfully obvious that they love spandex and goofy shirts.

    Pretty impressive athletes. Have a great time, avoid guys named "Raoul".

    I can probably think of at least 117 greater sporting events and one of them might be a random Astros vs Royals game.

    It really is one of the more grueling sporting events. For the athletes AND the spectators.

    The chain-reaction crashes are fun.

    118.

    Don't forget about the game the ball boy at the Royals-Astros game plays where he tries to spit sunflower seeds into an empty Gatorade from 4 feet.

    Your at a bicycle race and your calling us b!tches. Im laughing my azz off at how ridiculous that is. The french are stinky surrender monkeys and bicycling is exercise not a sport.

    However, some of the monasteries in the French Alps make their own liquors and that shiit will make ou hallucinate. That'd be fun. Get in the mood to throw firewood at cyclists.

    Now that sounds like a tremendous sport.

    Easily one of the most demanding sports in the world. Greco-Roman wrestling and triathlons are up there too.

    That's on flats. Blast down a hill at 60+ on a bike and get back to me about exciting.

    I think I'd rather go to a soccer game.

    I've done 110 uphill on a bike. Rt 9W by West Point.

    That's much more exciting....

    LOL, that's a little different, but I get what you mean. Something to be said for going a high rate of speed on two wheels, regardless.

    Yes.

    2 wheels.

    I'm more of a fan of acceleration instead of top speed.
