The Real Race Starts Here

Today is the first mountain stage in the Tour. Many say this is where the real race starts. Of course, it's not the case that the first week isn't part of the race - it may not be possible to win the overall classification in the first week, but it's sure as heck possible to lose it - but this is where the favourites start to jostle for position.

It's also when Eurosport start their full day's worth of coverage. It's great - you get up, and there's cycling on the TV. Right through til five. Doesn't get better than that.

I don't suppose Armstrong will attack today - I think he will wait til the Alps or the Pyrenees - but it's a difficult stage, the longest of the Tour, and as always it's all about being attentive.

Allez Lance.
