Who's following it?
I'm following. Haven't seen todays stage but what the hell were the officials thinking disqualifying Hushovd & Cavendish from yesterdays intermediate sprint? Completely bizarre.
Was surprised to see Cadel take the win.
i do!!! cadel was surprised himself he won
and good to see philippe gilbert can loose as well, i'm a fan, but i don't like dominators...
I do though don't know why really. 98% is a total snooze-fest and yet I can't stop. Maybe I've just followed it too long now and it's like nicotine addiction.
Cavs first and only win this year? There arn't many flat stages this year...
Seriously: As long as doping isn't made a criminal offense on an internationally basis, equal to fraud and punishbale by time in prison, things will not change. They simply won't.

I don't give a damn about doping anymore. And I'm kind of getting tired about it always getting brought up when discussing cycling or Tour de France in particular.
I watch Tour de France, and even though 90% of it is a whole lot of nothing, I find it to be totally worth it for the few moments of absolute suspense it provides in the crucial moments. I can't wait for the really hard mountain stages, where we'll see who's fit and who's not. Cadel has been looking good, Contador has been unlucky so far, but I think he's fit. I've always liked the Schleck brothers, but I am sort of dissapointed about the blatant mutiny that happened last year with Team Saxo Bank (6 of Saxo Banks riders from their team last year is on Leopard Trek this year). Though obviously, who knows what's been going on behind the scenes.
For me, all these doping accusations takes away nothing of the spectacle that is Tour de France.
That's the very thing that ruined it for me, you know: I simply cannot admire their achievements anymore.
Everytime I see someone climb up that hill in front of all others, I cannot help but think "Yeah, right... surely he's full of drugs to be able to do that".
The sport is absolutely ruined for me.
Others might still enjoy it but to me it's exactly like why I never play online games with others: You never know who's cheating but you can be damn sure that someone is.

Well, the Leopard Trek riders used to be Team Saxo Bank
But you are correct, Leopard Trek as a team is much stronger than Saxo Bank. But Contador is just so very good, it's going to be interesting to see.
Norwegian 1st and 3rd
Congratulations, quite a bit of Norwegian success so far
