Star Rider Interview: In the late 80s and early 90s there were a lot of big names in the peloton winning Classics - Sean Kelly, Phil Anderson, Gianni Bugno, Eric Vanderaerden... The list goes on.

Tour Coach: Watch For Falling Riders!

Analysis St. 1 There was an instant in the final kilometer of Stage 1 that gave me a horrible flashback to Stage 1 of the 2003 Tour. I saw helmets rise up and then plummet back down, as riders ran into and over a wall of their fallen comrades. As in 2003, Lance Armstrong escaped uninjured, but it remains to be seen whether today’s crashes will force anyone to leave the Tour after just one stage.
