We are now just five days away from the start of the 2013 Tour de France or as I like to call it “the most wonderful time of year.” Le Tour will get underway on Saturday with the riders skipping the traditional prologue and going straight for a 213 km (132 mile) opening stage that runs from Porto-Vecchio to Bastia on the isle of Corsica – a destination in France that has never played host to the race before. From there, it’ll only get better. Since this is the 100th Anniversary of the world’s biggest bike race, you can expect all kinds of pomp and circumstance, not to mention grueling riding, throughout the three week event. Personally, I can’t wait for it to begin!
