Bicicleteiros podcast #83, Tour de France podcast #2, recapping stage 9.
We didn't expect such a long gap between Tour podcasts, but here we are ten days in with two clear race favorites in Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck.

(Bicicleteiros podcast #82) This is our Tour de France overview, plus color commentary of the Prologue & Stage 1. Hans and Rob discuss their picks for the overall (yellow jersey), best sprinter (green jersey), best climber (polka-dot jersey) and best under-25 (white jersey).
We also discuss strategies for playing Versus.com Fantasy Cycling and RouleurDerby.com.
Amazingly, no doping is discussed! (The odd wisecrack doesn't count as 'discussion'.)
