    Seems like a few more of the cycling fans are off the board now. Either way, TDF 2022 started this morning. INteresting to see it in Denmark. I haven't had a chance to really follow it as much the last few years but hoping to return to watching again this year.

      Stage 11 features one of my favorite climbs, an absolutely beautiful, stunning mountain pass, incredibly steep as well. The Lacets de Montvernier.

      What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

        Oh wow. What a shot. I'll mark my calendar for that one. The chopper pilot is going to have a lot of fun with that.

          What maniacal fiend builds a road up a mountain like that? That's just crazy.

          That had to have been some old goat path from 2000 years ago that they paved over.

            That’s just the way the Alps are - there are hundreds of such roads, if slightly less dramatic. If they didn’t build roads like that, they’d be hardly any roads at all.
            If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

              Yeah, but that's nuts even for the Alps. That cliffside just goes straight up.

                Boston's roads seem just as non-sensical coming from the Midwest's grid pattern, lol....

                But yea, that was probably a foot path that originated in like 738 A.D....
                It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities

                Go Cats!!! GO BLACKHAWKS!

                  Cause Boston's roads are old cattle paths.

                      I haven't even looked at the course this year. So out of practice!

                      love me some cobble action as much as the riders hate it.

                        Still hate Phil and Bob. I used to love Phil, actually met him once, but his time has passed. Over/under on how many times he calls Mathiu van der Poel "Adri"? I'm taking 50. He's already referred to studio host Paul Burmeister as "Mark"

                        Thankfully, Peacock offers an alternate broadcast with commentary by Anthony McCrossen and former pro Nico Roche. Nico is very quiet, and almost laid back, but he knows his stuff.

                          Today's final climb has to be one of my absolute favorites of all time. Just a complete wall. TWENTY FOUR PERCENT ON GRAVEL!?! What a meat grinder. These guys can barely walk once they cross the finish. Edge of human capability.
