Boy you guys are BORING

If we're so boring why don't you add a constructive comment about the TDF?
Pierre Rolland keeps his polka dot jersey, Simon Gerrants win the 3rd stage.by barely beating Sagan to the finish line.
The race itself was boring to me but man what a great landscape!
The Corsican part is over, tomorrow they start the team trial back in France.

The Orica GreenEdge wins the team time trial with 25:56
Second place is Omega-Pharma-Quick Step with 25:57
Third place is Sky ProCycling with 25:59
Fourth place is Team Saxo-Tinkoff with 26:05
So now we have different times for the Yellow jersey!

"And Peter Sagan has said goodbye to Corsica with a big victory today!"

"Well, the board has Simon Gerrans winning the stage, but they will certainly change that, won't they."

"And it looks like Gerrans actually crossed the line in first!"

>.>

Aside from that, the team time trial was a really interesting race today. I thought for a moment that Saxo-Tinkoff and Alberto Contador would somehow win the stage, but an another miraculous victory came from Orica GreenEdge!

I just cannot find the interest in watching it. It isn't exciting to me. Honestly it is like NASCAR where the crashes are the most interesting part.


If you think the Tour is boring, try watching baseball ;D

Cavendish won the sprint in Marseilles! That was the only interesting moment of the stage for me, the rest was a little boring.
Mark Cavendish now has 24 wins. Will he win the next one tomorrow?

Greipel won the stage.
Cavendish finished 4th. Considering that he crashed some 17 km before the arrival, it's not too bad.

Daryl Impey gets the yellow jersey and Sylvain Chavanel is only 6 seconds behind. Peter Sagan keeps the green jersey.

Peter Sagan wins the intermediate sprint and the final sprint (stage) so he now has a huge lead in the green jersey competition.
Tomorrow the real mountain stage begin! One HC climb and 1 category top finish.

I like how some American kid always wins some time trial jacket, then falls off the map once the thing actually starts. XD

But definitely going to watch the mountain phase tomorrow. One of the truly impressive displays of athleticism out there.

Team Sky lead Chris Froom to the victory today.
Now we start to sort the men from the boys.
Man what an exciting stage!

Dan Martin from Garmin Sharp wins the stage.
Wow, so much strategy and what a nasty stage for the non climbers!
4 category 1 climbs total. The Moviestar team did a good job crushing everybody but Chris Froom managed to stay with them all the way so he's still the leader in the yellow jersey competition.
One rider fell into a ditch!
A very exciting stage!

I'm making baseball interesting to me the best way how: reading a ton of manga about it LOL. Seriously, so far, it's made boxing, bowling, and baking a hell of a lot more interesting.

But not cycling. I don't think I've ever encountered a cycling manga. Then again cycling isn't a big sport in Japan, I don't think...

Well there's at least one, his name is Harashiro I think.

Marcel Kittel wins the stage, Greipel finished 2nd and Cavendish 3rd.
Cavendish lost his concentration because a leadout rider for Kittel blocked him and he pushed him to the left and he crashed.
I don't known if he'll be penalized for it but he shouldn't since the other guy blocked him.
Nazi NBC is doing a crappy job as usual. They didn't even show the podium ceremony. I hate NBC, they're just parasites stealing sporting events from other networks just so they can make big money with advertisements.
