Yes. Today was exciting. Seemed like the classic case of teams not wanting to work until it was too late.

And today, the stage win and the yellow jersey go to two different riders, Teuns and Ciccone, both in their first Tour. Cool.

Ya Good race so far. Some were worried team Ineos would go wire to wire.

NBC TV had Lance Armstrong providing remote commentary this morning. Stay tuned to NBC for Jeffrey Epstein’s commentary on the Miss Teen America Pageant.

A lot of people are not ready to hear from Lance.

So far eleven different winners of the first eleven stages. That hasn't happened for twenty five years. Cool.

Seriously.

With regard to Alaphlippe descending, sitting on his top tube, Lance said some thing to the effect that he shouldn’t ride in such a dangerous position as it sets a bad example for those amateurs with poor handling skills that might try it themselves. Stupid on so many levels...

Alaphillippe is starting to seem 'unbelievable'.
