Tour De France - Any Spark Friends Pro Bike Lovers?

Sunday, July 03, 2011

We LOVE biking and live for some of the pro bike tours every year.

While I am greatly saddened by how the sport has been tarnished in recent years, I am still an avid fan.

So....are you watching? Who do you cheer for? There are FOUR U.S. teams now.

Love that I hear about riders and connect them to spark friends in different countries now! Peta, are you watching? :)

Watching the team time trial today in Stage Two and THAT makes me think of why team challenges are so meaningful here on spark people. We can all use the individual trackers to track our nutrition and exercise etc. but it's through teamwork and challenges we can really work together and push ourselves on different levels and grow.

So....who is up for the next round of Biggest Loser Challenge Round 17?????

    Believe it or not - I have been watching this with Mark. I love the people on the sidelines. They crack me up with costumes & running out in front of the bikes like crazy people. And what a great bunch of Athletes - WOW.

    Yes, I have been in love with the Tour probably since the Greg LeMond era. I used to want to be a pro and sewed my own gloves out of a used swimsuit when I was 10. LOL

    Now I'm just a spectator fan. It looks like an interesting race this year with those strong sprinters starting so well. It was neat to see Jens Voigt playing the pack mule yesterday for his team. We don't often see that from the veterans.

    I'm partial to George Hincapie, but I'll enjoy the race no matter who is leading. If Lance still were racing it, I'd be firmly in his corner -- lots of ties to him from when I used to live in Austin (and I remember watching him rising up before he had cancer).

    Enjoy the race!
