Suburu's Tour de France blog: Only the fit need apply

Stephen Baker

Take a look at Suburu's Tour de France blog. It has a mix of just about everything, from sweepstakes to corporate partners (Nokia). And you can bet that the winning blogger's blog from the Tour will become part of the campaign. The only surprise for me? Sounds like they expect the sweepstakes winner to pedal up all those mountains (stopping occasionally, perhaps, to drink water and fire off a mobile post). Via Adrants.

After reading what has happened to the Tour De France at the last moment, I think the best thing that could happened is for the riders to simply go home.

We no longer live in a world that needs proof that someone is guilty of doing something illegal, all we have to do is accuse them in the media and people who run events act like lemnings running into the sea. Once one begins it they all, referring to the news agencies, they all go crazy and then cry absense of malace when all the time Malace is the major reason for writing the story.

Truth...does anyone really understand this concept any more? Or have people just been lied to by the news organizations for so long that they would believe any thing at any time without ever looking into the subject? I think we all know the answer to that question.

Again riders I think if you were to demand that the Tour prove beyond any doubt that the riders they just diqualified had broken rules, then I wouldn't move an inch off the start line for the first hour after the tour begins or I wouldn't ride a all and offer to the whole world that you and all the riders would like to be tested before you move one-kilometer down the road. This might finally get these brain dead frogs off their collective brains and realize they might not even have a tour.

Just my opinion and if you disagree, well that is life...if you don't like what I have said here ask yourself why before writing any comments. And if you are offended by being called frogs again, well then if you would start acting like humans maybe you wouldn't have that handle.

Subaru could make an improvment by dumping the commercial with that horrible schreaching of Sheryl Crow as back ground music.

Floyd Landis is the 2006 Tour de France hero. What an epic day on the 17th stage today. I found t-shirts alrady available celebrating this amazing feat -
