The Tour de France is a Beautiful Mess and Maybe that?s How it Should Be

quote [ For a long time, I didn?t really ?get? the appeal of the Tour de France. A bunch of men in spandex torturing themselves on two wheels, each producing enough sweat to flush a toilet 39 times? (That was one of the more unusual statistics I found floating around out there). And how does anyone take this sport seriously if almost everyone is doping their way to the finish line? Surely they?ve gotta be making it up when they say this is the most watched annual sporting event in the world! ]
