Tour de Floyd

Another Tour de France in the history books, another American winner.

This year's race was just as crazy and chaotic as everyone thought it would be. I think some fans will have a greater appreciation of how Armstrong and his team controlled everything during the last seven Tours, if not for the guy himself. While I appreciate their control, I prefer a race that's more open and contested, like this year's.

Despite the loss of the big pre-race favorites, this Tour didn't let anyone down. Let's hope next year is more of the same!
