    Yeah, Moninger... he has a low monotone voice, makes it hard to listen to him. At least Craig Hummer is still around. I know Gogo was on Universal, but he did cover the TdF last year, and I thought really added to the commentary. I was sorry to see he isn't here this year.

    What utter chaos on the finish line this morning. Is there going to be any stopping Peter Sagan???? Wow!!

    I'm sorry, my bad, I forgot Gogo was doing TdF commentary on Versus last year. I'm going senile.

    I agree, he's really something.

    An interesting article about Sagan was posted today on my fave cycling blog, The Inner Ring:

    I adore that Specialized commercial! That is my favorite so far. Love the Road ID ones too.

    Okay, someone please tell the people at AGR2 that their shorts are too thin in back. We can see everything.

    So far the Road ID commercials I've seen have been clearly targeted toward men.

    Okay I just saw the one with the VW bus. That was okay, though for equal time I think George should have been leaning forward seductively.

    How many Sugar Puffs (or whatever they are) do you think George actually ate?

    Since you asked,

    RT @RoadID: The making of the "VW Bus" commercial. @GHincapie ate a lot of Crispy Puffs that day. http://bit.ly/N3iBBq

    The bad thing about watching the Tour on the "app" is that you don't see the commercials. DH loves this, but I like the commercials.

    Brewer and I have ongoing wagers about whether Moninger will smile (ever).

    They already know.

    What do you mean? Are any ads on any sports coverage targeted toward women or children?

    I'm not sure I understand why Team Sky is not supporting Cavendish this year. Also, I haven't figured out who I'm pulling for big time. Who does it for you?

    Because Wiggins is a serious contender for the overall GC the team needs to spend their energy to look after him. Cav probably knew this was a possibility when he joined the team and it doesn't seem to be causing him much difficulty so far.

    I'm bummed about Andy too, but with all the TTs in this course...well, you know. Anyway, there are only a few riders that I dislike anyway.

    I'd say being caught up in the pile up was a difficulty..... and one that he probably would never have suffered had he been in possession of his lead out train.... to his credit I haven't seen any complaining about it though, at least not yet. It's a risk you take when you are a "free agent" sprinter.

    It will be interesting to see how he does this year. It not only takes strength, but wiles too when you don't have the team all around you. Robbie McEwan was a master at it when he was at the top of his game.
