While it is heartwarming to see local boy Pinot take an emotional win on today's stage of the Tour de France, I have suffered a crushing day on the Luna Cycles Big Deal Fantasy Tour de France presented by Uncle Chuck's New School Pregreaser. Apparently, you can't rent a motorcycle and join the zooming press caravan relying on a proffered cell phone with your Fantasy Tour 'blog's mobile version pulled up on the browser as a press credential. The Amaury Sports Organization are real sticklers for things like "officially issued press passes" and other journalistic accoutrements. This is such an obvious case of "the establishment" trying to keep the little guy down. I'm looking right at you velonews and cyclingnews with your fancy windbreakers and Skoda cars and little "Presse" vests.

Little change again today as the top 3 teams remain the same in the LCBDFTdFpbUCNSP, but now our two female directeur sportifs lie in fourth and fifth. Are they knocking on the door of the podium?
