My God, what a finish....I even felt sorry for the kraut

But great win for McKewen

I said it before....what a finish. It don't matter that the top boys aren't in it when you have some finishes like that.

Maybe David Millar might get a good result....they're going on about him now

It's all very exciting, I have to admit.

Millar? Has he got some drugs like?

He'll be clean this year for sure.

I'm off to me scratcher. Hinchapie, Lance's side kick form years gone by, could take it this year if he can handle the mountain stages as well as he did last year.

Hey ho Walla, mate, it looks like it's just me and you watching the cycling

2 nobody's (actually, isn't it a tour of nobody's this year ) 8 minutes ahead of the peloton. Should be a good chase later on if a sprinter is going to win it

No, not just you 2 watching - many more, including me, but in France - so, I'm busy with a French cycling forum, and French TV coverage daily which includes various commentators trying to outdo each other... Just interested to see what is being said "elsewhere" i.e. here.

Aussie TV is obviously putting an aussie slant on things, shouting for Robbie McKewen and singing the chances of Cadel Evans. The main coverage is the same as Eurosport's in Europe

What's the take on the doping scandal in France?
