Cycling Tidbits

Before I left for Belize, I wondered after last year if I'd still be up for following the Tour in 2007. With so much focus on doping and cheating, courtrooms and headlines, I wasn't sure.

My love for cycling, the complex the tactics and competition between cyclists has sucked me back in. I find watching these crazy guys race each other across France quite enjoyable.

So, here are a few cycling tidbits to share with readers who are also TDF fans.

Toiur de France 2007 Info
I've now posted my Tour de France 2007 info page, which I've done for several years now. New this year is a section for iPhone apps, and updated streaming info. If you have any good links to add, please email me with "TDF" in the subject of your email.

Google Interview with Floyd Landis
Here's an interesting and very recent interview with Floyd Landis about his book, cycling, and more. Floyd seems relaxed and answers a wide variety of questions for almost an hour at the Google campus:


International Cycling Week in Milwaukee
Since 1969, pro cyclists have been coming to the Milwaukee and Southeast Wisconsin area for "Superweek" now known as the International Cycling Classic. If you're in this area and enjoy cycle racing, check out the schedule. It's a blast taking in a bike race on a warm summer evening or over a lunchbreak. You can even host a cyclist for a future event. This year Time-Warner Cable is also delay-broadcasting each race.

Enjoy!

Hey Mike,I forgot to mention to you, on my recent trip to Canterbury, for my daughter's graduation, we arrived the day after the first Tour de France event. This is the third year I have arrived somewhere just a day behind the event itself and witnessed the aftermath o fthe international media circus. One day I'll actually nail it!
