Some of you know I’m a fan of cycling, and every year I follow the Tour in truly geek fashion–by reading the live commentary from Cycling News–some of the most compelling writing you can find anywhere, especially if you follow it day-by-day in real time.

"Floyd Landis turned himself around from a defeated, broken man to a probable Tour de France winner in the space of a six-hour stage," said Paul Sherwen, a former pro and play-by-play announcer for OLN’s live Tour coverage. "What he did today was ride himself back into contention. Theoretically, that was impossible."
