This time of year, I’m glued to the television each night to watch coverage of the world’s greatest race, the Tour de France. Despite the scandal of last year’s doping allegations, I’m still very interested in the sport, and I hope that it will recover. Several are blogging the tour, and I’ve subscribed to a few of the blogs.
The Tour de France for the rest of us is “for those of us who stand on the outside of the Tour de France looking in. It tries to get past techno-babble and opens up the heart of this great cycling event to the rest of us. Enjoy the ride!”
Martin Dugard also covers the tour. He is the New York Times bestselling author of Chasing Lance (Little, Brown), a behind-the-scenes look at life at the Tour de France.
The TDF Blog also provides coverage, pictures, and videos of the race.
