The obscure sports gods have spoken, by eliminating the US from the World Cup, taking down Andy Roddick at Wimbledon, they want us to use these 5 days to get ready for the best event of the obscure sports calender: le Tour de France.
Now, I won't bombard you with information, but to get your schedule ready for the first 3 weeks in July please follow the guide provided on which days you will have to call in sick. I've already cleared my calender.
One of the integral characters of le Tour that will not be far from the spotlight will be Mark Cavendish. Due to this crash he caused less then 2 weeks ago, Tom Boonen and Heinrich Haussler are out of le Tour. Sprinters beware, Cav will take you out, literally.
