Le Tour 2010

26 07 2010

This was one of the best Tour De France ever, the battle between Andy Schleck and Alberto Contador kept going until the Time Trial on the 2nd to last stage. 

Sadly for me being in Scotland I had missed the first 2 weeks when most of the excitement happened, with the carnage on the cobbles of Belgium, Renshaws disqualification for headbutting, Cadel Evans crying (I really don’t like the man) and Lance Armstrong having a nightmare in his final tour. 

I did see the Pyraneese though and had there not been a technical hitch with Andy Schleck’s bike, I am convinced he would have won the tour. 

Still, well done Alberto, I have finally calmed down about your slightly dodgy move on Andy, but not the fact that your domestique Vino is an unrepentant drug cheat.

Also another 5 stages for Cav, he truly is a missile.  Team Sky didn’t have the best tour though, but they will learn.

Schleck would have won by a good few minutes, but that unsporting child went against all the morals of the peloton and overtook him when his chain came off. Grrr.

You are right I think he would have won, Contador knew that he was going to be beaten so took his chance when it came.

This probably says something about me, but thinking about it, I probably would have done the same.

It was un-sportsmanlike, but not illegal, and its happened to others before and will happen again.
