Why I have really enjoyed Le Tour De France this year.
In no particular order (at least not consciously) :-
1. Tony Martin - watching him time trial the third stage after being milliseconds behind the course leader.
2. Tony Martin again - watching him do a slow awkward and painful fall of shame in the fourth stage, break his collarbone, finish the race, congratulate his team mate, do interviews about the crash, raise a glass to his team in general then go to hospital to get checked out. SERIOUSLY?!?! Show me a footballer that would do that.
3. Peter Sagan - Always the bridesmaid never the bride, but still putting on a show - going for it in the breakaway and giving his best stab at climbing - and watching him fly like green swift down the descents!! If I had testicles, they'd be up in my abdomen. His finishing time and time again in second place yet still turning up for his interviews like he's having the best time of his life (which he probably is) is just... wow.
4. Nairo Quintana - Here's to the short arses! Making it difficult for Froome every step of the way and not doing things by halves. Watching him sling shot on stage 18 (I think?) then power his way up the Alps just to get second place.
5. Froome - I'm warming to him. I'm more inclined to see him as a genetic freak with overly large lungs that a doper, and even with all that aside I did like to see him break a sweat over Nairo getting to the top before him (I know it's not a simple than that - but some time it is).
