Missing Le Tour
I've covered several Tours so far, and did not think I would really miss being at this year's Tour, but I was wrong. Watching the race from my television today made me re-think my decision not to cover it this year. Sadder still, i do not subscribe to any sort of cable television, so i only get to see short videos on-line, and some replay coverage on Saturdays and Sundays. After watching today, I was drawn to visit past photos I had taken at Le Tour. I came across this one from 2008 - a finish in Italy at a mountaintop village, Prato Nevoso, Italy (wow, what a trek it was to even get there). Both of these riders continue to race, and are a part of this year's Tour. They've changed teams, but remain teammates on Trek Factory Racing: Fabian Cancellara and Jens Voigt.
