The 110th edition of The Tour De France begins today:
2,128 miles (3,405 km)
Bilbao, Spain hosts Stage 1
Watch and listen. Marvel at the glory of an unmatched sporting event, the incredible athleticism and the beauty of Europe. All part of God’s majestic creation.
And, to put The Tour into perspective, some quotes from Bobke, cyclist, resident philosopher, and commentateur extraordinaire:
“They’re riding into the abyss of lactic-acid-crippling haze.”
“They are reaching deep into their suitcases of courage.”
“Ka-pow. In the Tour de France sometimes you are the windshield and sometimes you’re the bug.”
