Apart from family, what could be more important than wine and bikes? Of course, there might be the odd rant about other topics on here too...

NY Times TdF coverage

The Times is doing a whole feature on the Tour and even have a multimedia report from George Vessey (which is really him speaking and them showing scrolling photos). I get pretty annoyed with mainstream media's coverage of cycling usually (because it's so bland and aimed at such a low common denominator, it's often inaccurate), but George's report was really good until the end, when he said that nobody leaves Armstrong's team and remains his friend - and at the same time showed photos of him with Hamilton and then Zabriskie (who Vessey even remarked he liked). Because Zabriskie was never a big name on (then) Postal, that doesn't count?
