Well I never really cared for it, I would watch it if I happened across it but I wouldn't set out to watch. Last year though I tore all the ligaments in my shoulder on 4th of July weekend and got to watch the rest of the tour between my Percocett induced time travel episodes. Since I was stuck in the recliner 24/7 I got to piece together every minute of the tour and really got into the strategy and determination that goes into winning the tour. Since the tour starts in early July I figured what the hell I might as well go and break my collar bone this year so I can stay home to watch it. I have watched most of it this year and am pissed that Alexandre Vinokourov had teamates withdrawn as I was looking forward to what he might do this year, but the withdrawl of his teamates negated this possibility, so now I am hoping an American will win as it seems team Discovery has little chance of winning.
