Tour de France and have you noticed I haven't mentioned it? If you have been following me for a few years you will know it is one of those things I look forward to every year (see here) with a little more zest and passion than some of the more common sports we see here in Edmonton. For the most part we have football in the summer and hockey in the winter. In more recent years though we have captured the Edmonton Indy which if you have not been to, might I say it is spectacular! More recently we saw the Edmonton World Cup Triathlon. (Sorry, it's not a very politely Canadian written article). We wish hometown gal Paula Findlay well in London.
Andy Schleck suffered from a fractured pelvis just before the tour. Once I had heard this, I thought I would still cheer on his brother Frank (who is now 16th ) or Canadian, Ryder Hesjedal . Frank is doing okay, but it is still a bit too early to tell what might happen, and Ryder fell, so you guessed it... he is out now too(he still plans to be at the Olympics). What's a gal to do?
Bradly Wiggins and Cadel Evans both look strong, so my bet is on one of them :)
In the meantime... I'll just have another cup of coffee and enjoy our summer heat wave!
