Le Tour

So Le Tour's back. I've been watching it, but it's hard to really root for anyone. That sentiment was affirmed today, when it was announced Ricardo Ricco was pulled from the race for having a freakishly high amount of red blood cells. Ricco had powered through stage nine's mountains with extraordinary strength, and it turns out it may very well have indeed been out of the ordinary.

You may not be able to believe in any of the athletes, but at least the hosts don't disappoint. There's a new cycling team this year, sponsored by Garmin and that fast food Mexican joint owned by McDonald's. How does Phil Liggett pronounced it? Chi-POT-lee. Fabulous.
