Tour de France 2013 Review: Time to swoon for Froome | Blazin’ Saddles – Yahoo! Eurosport UK

He was heads and shoulders above the rest of the field and it is right that we are now talking about the possibility of a period of domination in the Tour – because he has all the attributes to go on and join the five-Tour club.

Maybe the Tortoise is just envious of the speed.  No, I confess it.  I am a Francophile.  I love the place and freely admit to a respect for the way the French do things.  They’re not perfect, but the light show at the conclusion was simple, classical elegance.  I cannot think of another nation which has been so fortunate to have a three-week long,  “Olympian” event — and yearly, too.  I understand that the French had to be convinced of how epic The Tour is.  And more amazing is that the first stage in Corsica will be replaced by Yorkshire next year.  Quel rapprochement!   David Milliken
