How many stars (5 being the best) would you give the TdF so far?

I'm going to decide whether to start watching it or not based on your ratings.

If you have no interest and are looking for someone to influence you then you'd be better off watching MLB. With that said, I think there is a chance that we may see some sparks fly in the mountains. Froome cannot possibly ride like he has if he is clean. No freaking way...

When we are not racing our walkers up and down the hallways we rate the TDF


Either that or an enema.

2 stars. Pretty boring, overall. Froome and SKY have a stranglehold on the race. His sizeable lead will lead to very conservative racing in the next week.

Some good stages, but as far as the GC, it is a snoozer.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Since the riders radios came on the scene that has "dumbed" it down and we will not see the lone heroics
succeed..that and the "super domestiques" teams controlling things. So 3 stars from me.

Yellow and Green jerseys pretty much decided...two stars. However, some of the scenery has been beautiful. The finishing location of the TT was way cool.

Very good move by Saxo. I'm liking this tour.

Hmmmm....today certainly gets 5 stars. We'll see how it plays out.

Best GC stage in years......and totally unexpected. SKY is lamenting the loss of Boss Hog BIG TIME right now.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Great strategy by Saxo, cavendish and sagan sitting on for the ride benefit.

Riis understands that bike racing is not all about watts, VOmax and the last climb of the day. Sky only knows how to race one way and it cost them today.
