Bet you thought I'd forgotten, didn't you. Wrong! Miss something last week? Last week was all about getting ready for the Tour de France and the Giro Donne, two of the biggest races of the year. Roll below the fold and have a look at last week's features!
Chris liked five riders at the Tour de France. Then, Gav wanted to watch five more.
We ruminated on a team merger rumor between Omega-Lotto and Quick Step before the teams ruined all our ruminating fun. Related: Blondes have more fun.
Super-Doping! And, Breaking News: French Police Search Bus, Find Nothing. Not even Tom Boonen's underwear. Disappointment!
The Tour of Utah held a press conference. We went! And got smarter.
We also got smarter by reading Bonnie Ford on Alberto Contador on a Friday morning. Chris also wrote about Alberto Contador, le patron.
Some riders told us all about the Giro Donne. We also previewed the heck out of it in our Giro Donne Viewers' Guide. Because we heart it so hard.
The Tour de France presentation. It was... cool? Chris previewed the Tour de France teams, but without the costumes and the pony rides.
We have race winners! Marianne Vos, Philippe Gilbert, Shara Gillow, Garmin-Cervélo, Marianne Vos (again!), Ina-Yoko Teutenberg, Tyler Farrar (Happy Fourth!), Nicole Cooke, and Cadel Evans.
Happy July and stuff.
