“Always nice to see a bit of Brest on morning TV.”

Eurosport presenter (whose name I have temporarily forgotten),
introducing the first stage of the 2008 Tour de France
which started from Brest today

Oh behave.

The cycling season has been under way for months, but this is undoubtedly The Big One. It isn’t actually my favourite race – personally I prefer the Giro, but this is the one that pulls in the advertisers and gets the best TV coverage as a result.

The Tour de France has begun.

So that’s three weeks of me glued to a TV screen then. Brilliant.
