Despite Froome's dominance, it's been quite a tour this year. It's an amazing route as well, and there are still three mountain stages to come before Paris.

Disappointed to see Evans and Schleck well out of it this year, currently 18th and 16th overall, but they just can't keep up with the six or seven or so leaders.

I'm trying to change my DNA so I'm part cheetah by next year. I've heard cheetahs are really good at riding bikes.

You will need to completely ablate your bone marrow for the cheetah DNA to have any chance of engrafting. Even then, I would say your chances are pretty spotty.

I've had a mountain bike for years and I do some trail riding. Last summer I bought a Specialized road bike, the first road bike I've ever owned. Strictly amateur hour, though.

I pretty much exclusively used a mountain bike to get around for 2 years while I was in Japan, never had a car. I got so sick of it, that I swore to myself I'd never ride a bike again after returning to the US. Every summer I get incredibly tempted to buy a bike. Almost pulled the trigger on a road bike a few years ago. I just can't decide what I should get (road bike, mountain bike, etc), as I know I'll be doing it more for fun than any sort of serious riding. Probably be better off just getting a sissy pants beach cruiser or something.

Just make sure the entire bike is carbon fiber. Every microgram counts.

When I'm part cheetah, none of that will matter.

I think I would stay away from that particular PED. It appears to make one more youthful but has hormonal side effects.

You guys heard about AOD9604? It's tearing Australian sport apart.

Yeah, I think I've seen you reference it on Twitter. It hasn't gotten much press in the states.

AOD9604? Looks like when someone accidentally puts their password in the username section, and keeps using the account.

Great route this year, with some very cool stages. None more so than the next one. L'Alpe d'Huez twice.
