If anyone ever wondered why cycling is a team sport should just watch today's stage of the Tour. I feel bad for Flyod Landis, who had the yellow jersey and was number one. His team and he completely fell apart. Without a good team, a rider is lost. One man cannot possibly singlehandedly attack other teams.

This year's tour makes me wonder about Lance Armstrong. I never liked Armstrong, but without 3 of the biggest contenders from last year, it's clear that he was really excellent. I mean, I knew that, but this year I think it's really apparent how hard it actually is to be a continuously strong rider.

Wow, this entry seems so grammatically incorrect.

I didn't really like Landis either, but It's always sad to see cyclists crack and fail and fade away.

Okay, that's my Yikes Bikes post for today.
