A couple of weeks ago we went to the F1 at Silverstone and we're off to see the 2011 Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship in London in a couple of weeks but the last two weeks have seen me addicted to this year's Tour de France, who knew that cycling could be so exciting, and really it is!
I've loved the coverage on ITV4HD, it's been entertaining and informative for a newbie like me and the race itself has been packed with thrills and spills, they say the tour is won and lost in the mountains and it's true, I thought the only edge-of-your-seat stuff would be the sprints and time trials but the mountain stages are just as exciting, plus there's all the team tactics and jersey competitions to add a bit more spice to the proceedings, plus the occasional puncture and mental costume-wearing fans to look out for too.
