8. The days of Eddy Mercx and even Greg LeMond are gone. It all seems like a spectacle now.

I've raced bikes. I've been humiliated by Levi Leipheimer, although I am old enough to be his father.

For starters, these people are all freaks. And that's quoting one of the riders in the 2012 Tour.

But to be honest, this shuttling of racers from venue to venue at a time when CO2 concentrations are skyrocketing, is just ignorant and pathetic. I look at it as a sign of the times. Like building Olympic villages every few years.

It's all insane. So why even bother trying to make it clean. That's one take on it.

We'll never get back to the days when the roads of the Tour de France were unpaved.

I'm trying to put this in perspective. That's all.
