Sweet sixteen! Today’s 16th stage saw the end of the Pyrenees mountain stages, and the continuing dominance of American Lance Armstrong. Armstrong still has a very comfortable 2:46 lead on second place, and is ready to set his cruise control. Hopefully, he won’t have to deal with obnoxious French cycling fans, who have been the cause of two disappointing incidents in the last two stages.
On Sunday, a fan got too close to the riders, and was run over by a motorcycle camera crew. Today, another idiot hit rider Andrey Kashechkin in the face during Tuesday’s 16th stage, allegedly by accident. Are you kidding me? Is this cycling or soccer?
