Tour de France 2011 Stage 3 Sprint to Brittany

Lead by Garmin-Cervelo (1) and BMC (2), all 4 Teams USA ranked in the top 10. The mighty Thor goes into Stage 3 wearing the maillot jaune. Today, the Americans are dominating the French-born sport, which might not have ever happened, were it not for the guy from Texas who dominated for 7 years in a row. Yes, Greg LeMond, you were the first American to win the jersey; but, Armstrong really brought the sport forward for the rest of the world, too.

So, today’s route is good for the sprinters. Mark Cavendish says he wants to leave his mark. Hasn’t he already done? Phil Ligget’s picks have been spot on, so far, this year, and he says it will be Tyler Farrar’s day. Well, the younger ones are challenging the top, and this is turning out to be a very interesting Tour.

And what’s in store for Contador? Well, let’s not go there. Yes, the guy is talented; but…He does have amazing eyelashes, though. 😉

Meanwhile, it’s 100F in Central Texas for Independence Day, and I’d rather be by the sea in Brittany watching the boys ride by.
