LinkStuff – Tour de France Edition

by Mike Holman

Any cycling fans out there? I’ve managed to convert my wife to an avid fan.   This year’s Tour de France was quite exciting and you just can’t beat the scenery and interesting historic buildings along the route.

It looks like Contador will win this year. I am cheering for Schleck, but I always thought Contador was the favourite.

Canadian Capitalist says that Canadians don’t need to add commodities to their portfolio. I agree.

Thanks for the mention. I was pulling for Schleck as well. It seemed that he had a small chance to form a break just before his chain popped off.

I dislike any sports involving wheels. Would rather watch darts, although the countryside is prettier in cycling. I will go check now how Nicolas Roche is doing though.

What about Ryder Hesjedal? The Canadian finished 7th Overall! SEVENTH! A CANADIAN! TOP TEN. WOOT.

Sorry. Got excited. Thanks for the link love. 🙂

@Squawkfox – good point!

Funny thing about Ryder – I didn’t know what his first name was. I thought they were calling him “rider Hesjedal”. 🙂

Eventually I figured it out!
