Obviously out of those two, there are many things more entertaining than bike races such as watching forum ladies mud wrestle in trisuits.
i've only followed cycling a few years but the giro has always been more exciting i think. more exciting route. ridiculously steep climbs. i think the main thing is that the GC contendors are always going all out to win. in the tdf (in my unimportant opinion) people for the most part are protecting their 7th position or 4th position by the third week and won't risk it all in a do or die attempt to improve their lot.
the giro route looks a little boring for the most part till the final week this year. i haven't even bothered looking at the tdf route as i imagine it'll be the usual boring stuff. i'll still be watching every minute of the tdf though! i guess what makes teh tdf so good is its importance to the cycling world and sports world in general. i doubt alot of tdf fans even know the giro exists.
following the lance armstrong stuff this year has been funny. especially on the cyclingnews forum. although lance does look pretty lean now so perhaps he's going to do well again.
that final day of proper racing on the ventoux was pretty amazing though and cav finishing off on sunday.
it'll be good this year to see how wiggo goes in tdf and giro. the first year i followed cycling in 2005 there wasn't even a brit in the tdf, let alone brits being in the GC and sprints.
Been watching the Giro TT in Amstedam this afternoon... the crowds were great and it was impressive how fast they zoomed past!
Cycling on tv....still not sold on it...
These both sound good events - where do I enter.
Will my pirate kit arrive in time?
1. Smiffy gets entertainment from his Giro? Get a jaaarrrb.
2. "watching forum ladies mud wrestle in trisuits". Ahh, Southwater looms again.
No, truthfully, I have no idea what you are talking about.
Zoncolan is a week on Sunday...
Loved Tyler Farrar not see'ing the traffic bollard today, Looks like Transitions lenses aren't really that good
lol he did ok at the end tho didn't he?
come july maybe one of armstrongs buddies will be nudging contador into some street furniture.
i was going to write in my opening email about the spectacular crashes in the Giro but didn't want to give hte impression that was one of the reasons to watch it! but the giro really does have hte biggest crashes. i remember once the road was so wet (or ices, or both!) in italy that 50 riders simultaneously had their wheels slip out form underneath them.
