Tour 2012: On the Champs Elysees Twelve Hours Until the Race Begins!
Really in to the countdown now, roughly twelve hours until the Tours rolls out. Twenty One days of racing over the next twenty three days pedaling around France all in hopes of making it to this famous boulevard in yellow. While most know they have no hope of ever wearing the Malliot Jaune of the Tour de France, they will race for stage wins, the Green, White or Polka Dot Jerserys or even just dream of making it all the way to Paris. It is even an honor to be the Lanterne Rouge (the rider in last place in the overall classification). And every sprinter dreams that he will be the one to win on the Champs Elysees and Mark Cavendish holds that honor most recently.
