Vinokourov Wins Tour de France Time Trial

I'm still roaming the earth but not in a position to be posting alot this week. Cycling is one of my passions and for avid cyclists there is nothing comparable to the Tour de France. The Tour is a highlight film of life. It's about strategy, teamwork, perseverance, commitment, training and plain old hard work. If nothing else, seeing the beautiful French countryside is amazing. Alexandre Vinokourov, a favorite before the race began, just won a time trial after a serious accident earlier in the Tour. Vinokourov is a rider who has an indomitable will and could win any race by sheer determination. I find that a very attractive trait. I truly believe in the old adage that the genius of success is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.

Michael "Chicken Legs" Rasmussen, a former mountain biker, leads the General Classification as well as the King of the Mountain Classification. Once again proving that mountain stage strategy is key to winning this grueling race.
