Go Lance Go

Le Tour de France got off to the official start today. For those of you interested in following along it's broadcasted on OLN. As far as I remember, you can see it broadcasted live every day on OLN - Channel 49 for Canada.

The first leg was short and a fast time trial. Lance was inched out for 2nd place behind 029 ZABRISKIE (USA, CSC). They are only 2 seconds apart. However, that is surely not what Lance is aiming for and probably not what is on his mind. He's still over a minute ahead of most of his competitors such as Ulrich who is 1:08 behind. Looks like the two dominate teams are CSC and DSC who had 4 riders place in the top 25.

So as the first stage has ended, it seems the American's have quite a strong showing this year. More to follow of course... only 22 more days!
