Tour de France Final Weekend.

This is the first year I have really followed the TdF. I have watched every stage, at least fast forward through them to the good parts, its been so much fun to watch.

Tomorrow they race the last 'real' stage of the tour, with a huge uphill finish on the Mont Ventoux. The final Km averages 10 percent grade, brutal. Sunday ends in Paris with a circuit race on the the Champs Elysees.

Contador pretty much has it in the bag, barring any injuries or crazy mishaps during the stage, however you never know on a huge climb, if someone has the legs they can battle it out. Its very unlikely, Contador's a freaking billy goat.

Thank you TdF for all the fun for the past 3 weeks, its been great. Cheers.
