Versus TdF Preview Today 7pm EDT

Hi, folks. Just a quick reminder to all Vesus-watchers that their 1/2-hour Tour de France preview show is on today at 7pm EDT/6pm CDT.

 VS started their cycling "coverage" today by showing five hours of LA's "greatest" stage wins in the TdF.  2001 stage 10 ("The Look," on l'Alpe d'Huez,) 2001 stage 13 (Ullrich crashes, LA waits,) and are now in their third hour (2002, Stage 12, the stage where Christoph Moreau punched Carlos Sastre in the face and the Chechu/Heras/LA train charges up and passes Laurent Jalabert on the Plateau de Beille.) 

 I haven't watched these Tours for a couple of years now, and it's amazing how many convicted dopers were right in there:  Ullrich, Botero, Rumsas, Sevilla, Heras, Serrano, Didier Rous, Gonzalez de Galdeano, Frigo, Piepolli, Landis.  I'm watching and mentally checking them off:  doper, yup, doper, yup, doper, yup.  I'm glad I was a more naive cycling fan back then, it's enough to break your heart...
