Paris in July - Week 2 Wrap up

It's my turn to do the weekly wrap up, and what a pleasure it has been to review all the posts that have been put up. Before I get into the official wrap up of Paris in July posts - I'd just like to indulge myself with a little wrap up of Le Tour de France! I love this race..... and I promised myself that I wouldn't focus on it during Paris in July - but what harm is a small detour?
Us Aussie do well in the tuff conditions!!! Go Richie!!

This week in Le Tour de France we have seen some amazing racing, absolutely terrifying conditions, and some fascinating developments.... The loss of Sky's lead out man, Froome, after falling on the cobblestone day, means a change in role for my current Aussie crush - Richie Porte has now been given a chance at putting Australian Cyclists back into the podium  (or close). I'm watching these Aussie boys... Richie Porte (Sky), Mark Renshaw (Omega Ph), Simon Gerrans (OGE), Michael Rogers (Tinkoff-saxo), and Adam Hansen (Lotto)... all up there are 10 Aussies in the race - and we have hopes to see one in the top 10 at the end!

Now - wrap up news; I like lists - so here's this weeks
