Default Re:ProTour Cycling Thread

I normally follow as many stages of the Giro and the Tour de France as I can via Eurosport, I may watch a stage or two of the Vuelta. I really enjoy cycling (been following since the early 21st century) however it keeps hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons, the 2007 TDF scandals seriously damaged the reputation of the sport but steps are being taken and the cheats are being caught, hopefully cycling will be clean.

Earlier today team Astana were banned from entering this year's tour de france unsurprisingly due to what happened last year so Contador will have to find a new team if he's to defend his title.

When it comes to cycling, I always prefer watching the mountain stages, in the Giro last year they had to surpass the summit of a mountain which was almost 3km high, the mountain stages also tend to give a clearer idea of who the main contenders are for the particular tour.
