Looking at the route. The tour comes within 10 miles of my house. Fantastic.

You'd be better off going a little further afield into the Dales though I think, where the climbs are. You get to see them for longer then!

Kathy Lemond testified to the Grand Jury that Nike paid off the Head of the UCI to cover up a positive drug test for Armstrong. Basically I think I will skip the TDF until the facts on that are out.

I agree, the truth must come to light and the culprits be punished but there is a new generation of clean cyclists... And it would be a shame to punish them as well... Anyway, that's 6 months away, or 18 for the Yorkshire start!

Skip it? No way. Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish both as clean as a whistle. Along with other riders, they get my support. The Armsrtrong era is history. Spot on Kat. Don't punish the new generation.

Exciting riders for sure. However until the UCI and Nike confess their involvement in supporting drug use and corruption in Pro cycling and lay out a plan for recovery then there is no redemption for the sport.
