Le Tour de France
We have been enjoying following the Tour of France and generally watch the very good ITV4 highlights package in the evening. Mark Cavendish captured our attention and as a British rider he got a bit of coverage - he sure can sprint and with four stage wins what a great effort. He pulled out before the Alps (I can understand that, who would want to bike up those mountains!) to concentrate on the Olympics. We get the occasional mention of Julian Dean (the New Zealander) but only in passing and now everyone's attention is on Cadel Evans as we head into the final stage and time trial today. If a New Zealander can't win the race then an Australian might as well!
