Don’t get me wrong I love the Classics. My first gig in cycling journalism was Paris-Roubaix. The Giro d’Italia is also a major highlight with its beauty and, well, it being Italian. However, right or wrong, the Tour de France is my favorite.
That said, last year was a bust for me as it was a boring overall race with muted attacks with a winner that was a step above the competition. Regardless, I’m counting down the days until June 29th and the peloton rolls out of Corsica for its 100th anniversary.
To commemorate the event the ASO produced a slick video to get everyone’s pulse pounding. I’m hoping they follow up on other social media platforms like Twitter.
Anyways – enjoy the video and let the countdown begin!
