It's that time of year again, where a few cycling fans talk about the Tour de France and a couple of people pop into the thread to say that it's boring or that cyclists are dopers.
They climb Alpe D'Huez today, the most famous climb in the sport. As I type this Stephen Kruijswijk has a 6 minute lead on the race leaders, but Sky and Movistar have a lot of bullets left in the chamber. Kruijswijk seems to have a good shot at the stage win; holding onto his virtual yellow jersey is more tenuous, but it'll be fun to watch.
There have been some good stages so far, and Geraint Thomas has the lead rather than Chris Froome, but with Sky controlling everything up front it seems like now is the time for drama before Sky closes its stranglehold on the race for good.
