Great Tour

Usually, one Giro d'Italia has more interest than about 7 Tour de France. But this year, the Giro wasn't as good as usual (thanks in part to Alberto having no real competition) and the Tour was action packed (thanks in part to Alberto not being at his best, other riders becoming more human to the same level as the French and sadly, to the numerous crashes).

Congratulations to Cadel Evans who many didn't consider a serious favorite until it was too late (I'm talking to you Andy). Nice gutsy performance by Voeckler, Rolland, Thor and Philippe Gilbert too.

Jonny hoogerland was my hero from Le Tour. To get knocked off by that imbecile and ending up impaled on the barbed wire fence was bad enough but to then get 33 stitches and complete it was fantastic!
