2007 Tour de France

(American Levi Leipheimer, Who Finished Third)
(Tour de France Podium Winners)
(Final Standings)

I will admit it I guess, I secretly love watching the Tour de France. I find the whole thing fascinating. I realize that the whole thing is rife with performance enhancing drugs (but what sport isn't these days?), but the idea of people cycling OVER MOUNTAINS is astounding to me. I won't go on and on, I guess the question I want to raise is this (see standings above): Could you imagine riding a bicycle for 91 HOURS and losing the race by 31 SECONDS (as third place rider, American Levi Leipheimer did)?? Crazy, I tell you.
