Once Again, France Wins Host Country Bid For Tour De France

This is the 106th time in a row that France has been selected as the host country for the Tour de France.

They HAVE to be cheating.

3. Even their kids speak French fluently.

Really smart people to teach a foreign language to their children at such a young age.

4. The race should favor climbers.

I did not see any flat time trails, but there is a time trial at Pau, which should be hilly and difficult. The only rider that I can remember who wasn't caught doping that such a Tour would favor is Miguel Indurain. I was about to write Pedro Delgado, but his tour win may have been invalid due to suspected doping.

I don't know about you. I have watched old video of the great multi tour winners. In some ways I wish that such dominant riders existed today, but with the contracts of today, that isn't possible because a top rider can't collect and hold top domestiques like to old time dominant riders could.
