CSMonitor.com | Cycling's enduring Tour de force

The Christian Science Monitor has a nice Tour overview:

"The script is a surefire success ... that plays from generation to generation," wrote sportswriter Jean-Michel Thenard in the daily Libération. "A panoramic school of life against the picture postcard setting of summer in France. Hollywood might envy it."

Compare and contrast with ESPN's column Tour de Lance: Who cares.

Regarding the Jim Armstrong (no relation to Lance) piece on ESPN, I can only assume that he is trying to be provocative, because it's rather ignorant.

A point-by-point critique of the article would be a waste of time.
