Tour de France News

Who's next?
Lance Armstrong's rivals are decreasing all the time. First Beloki, and now Vinokourov. T-Mobile anounced who will be in the Tour de France on their team, and Alexandre Vinokourov isn't on the list. He crashed on a traffic island in a race and suffered a concussion, facial scrapes, and ligament damage to his shoulder. The shoulder injury required surgery, which will keep him off the bike for 3 weeks — the 3 weeks leading up to the Tour (unless he's like Lance and doesn't do anything his doctors tell him to). He would have been helping Jan Ullrich in the battle to win his second Tour de France, so Ullrich wouldn't be called the 'Eternal Second'. I haven't heard about the wonderclimber Roberto Heras in a while. Maybe he wants to just train instead of race so this won't happen. See y'all next Saturday!

  1. I am glad we're not riding for T-Mobile. Who thought pink would be a good color for a cycling team?
