Tour de France Done.... Great Rides for many
I love the Tour de France and all of the drama that came this year with the layout of the overall stages to end the race on Ventoux. Obviously a big win for Contador, and one heck of a comeback for Lance, apparently sending TV ratings around the world through the roof. Pretty impressive to come back after four years and finish on the podium, beating some of the best riders in the world. If you missed Ventoux, you missed some unbelievable riding by the #2 finisher overall, Andy Schleck.
Team Garmin came back in their sophomore year and really stood out in my mind to come in second for the Team standings, with Brad Wiggins coming in fourth overall, and young sprinter Tyler Farrar on the podium today just missing the last sprint for first place.
If you like Team Garmin, you should have been following Jake on Twitter; he was there for the first six stages, and again the last few days of the Tour, offering up some great pictures, (Note the Garmin Edge on the handlebars of Brad Wiggins) and some fun commentary too. Sure Jake is an employee of Garmin, but it's easy to tell he's a fan too.
