Sports – Mmmmm TdF goodness

2006 Tour de FranceI’m such a geek. Each year I look forward to the Tour de France more than just about anything else. I get up at 6am everyday just to watch it live on OLN. This year it kicks off in Strasbourg on July 1st and I’m already getting into the swing of things by getting out on my road bike every day that it isn’t raining (OK pouring). It’ll be extra interesting to see who wins it now that Lance Armstrong is retired.

It’s nice to see there are geeks out there with more time on their hands than I have. A bunch of Tour de France fans in the Google Earth Community (GEC) have actually mapped the 2006 route out in Google Earth. Go check it out. Do the 3-d tilt with the mountain routes. Very cool.
