I'm doing my catch up of the Tour de France from the weekend, so I'm watching what I recorded from Friday/Saturday. Vinokourov, so far is holding his own in the peloton, but he's not frontrunning so the injuries are probably still limiting him.

Here's a thought. I've watched this race quite a few times, but it's just now occurred to me. Where are the black guys? Why don't black guys figure in bicycle racing? Hmmm. Differences in muscle composition would be my best guess, but I'm surprised there are none in a starting field of 189 riders.
