Versus.com will be hosting reports each night from the venues all over France. The schedule will be live update coverage early in the day, twice daily coverage of the racing, and then a primetime coverage of the days events.
This should be an interesting year.Here are some of the words you will hear during bike racing. Here is my translation on the meaning.
“domestiques” - This is a French bicycle term for goofer. Or the other duties as assigned.
The Peloton - This is the term used for the posse or the pack of guys riding a bike.
The color of the jersey - yellow, green, white, and polka dot, each has a different meaning and the racers have a different goal in the race. The first time you watch the Tour it takes time to figure out what each racer is doing and which purpose they performing for their team.
