Tour De France
My favorites Chris Froome and Mark Cavendish had crashes and could not finish the race. So I did not pick any other favorite because of superstition.
I love seeing the country side and wish the commentators would tell us the names etc of the Churches and castles. Also it would be fun to have injected little bits of information about the country side that the rider pedal through. My battery put its little feet in the air before I could finish all the photos I wanted of the riders.
Some of the conditions that they rode through well I would be hard pressed to walk through.
Wham, wham it is over until next year. Maybe I should send in my suggestions to the commentators.
Congratulations to Vincenzo Nibali from Italy for his 2014 win of the tour.
I found it enjoyable to see the big Germany with the most talked about hair to be the winner of stage one and twenty-one. You go Marcel Kittel
Hats off to a consistent Peter Sagan as he won the Green Jersey. He was there in second place a few times but always in the leaders group. I guess he could be called a Lean Green running machine.
The King of the Mountain- Poka Dotted Jersey went to Poland's Rafal Maika. The mountains they climbed were not for sissy to try and ride up. Congrats to you.
The Best Young Rider the white jersey went to France's Thibaut Pinot. I think we will see more of him in the future as he will only get better.
The overall best time for a team was also France's Team. Forgive me but I do believe it was team Mondiale or NOT.
Our own American Tejay Van Gardener took fifth in overall. Way to go Tejay.
If I misspelled or got my facts wrong remember I have only recently gotten to be a Fan.
The Kitty Justice is to learn more each year. Now hop on your bike and get going.
