le Tour - 2011

Well, it was a good tour.
Contador did not repeat. Perhaps he did not eat the correct type of beef this year.
Schleck second again - for the third time. He needs to work on his time trialing or gain more time in the mnts on his main opponents.
Lots of nasty crashes. It seems the first week this year was really bad and several teams were destroyed by crashes: Namely, Radio Shack and Lotto. I had high hopes for Horner, but it was not to be.
Team Garmin did great. Thor won 2 stages, Farrar won a stage and was close on a couple more. And the team won the TTT.
BMC stayed away from trouble and brought Evans to victory.
HTC won 5 stages with Cavendish and the French finally won a stage at Alpe d' Huez. Several young French riders show promise.
