....They don't know what they've missed.....But there's still time, because tomorrow's time trial will decide the Tour de Fance, although there's a slim chance Sunday's ceremonial stage could have the final say.

Interesting that the article on the Tour's ratings without Armstrong note the decline in France, where an average audience of 37.7 percent watched the race in the first 15 days of the tour compared with 44.7 percent a year earlier.

We know damn well the French weren't tuning in to pull for Armstrong. Must have been like watching the Yankees in the playoffs. We watch and pray they lose.
