The Tour de France takes place this month. Check out the photo coverage of the cycling event!
The Spanish cyclist is one of only five riders in history to win all three “Grand Tours” of road cycling. He won the 2007 Tour de France, 2008’s Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a Espana and the 2009 Tour de France. He was stripped of his 2010 Tour de France and 2011 Giro d’Italia titles when he tested positive of the drug clenbuterol in 2010.
Gary: Who do these candidates need to appeal to anyway? I think most Americans realize that this is a show for the richest political donors, the folks who slurp up the craziness because they know that's a great tool for distracting voters from the real issues - political and economic reform. Look, the government policies of the last 35 years have been tailored to the preferences of the economically advantaged, and the folks who reside in the bottom 99% have nothing in common with the people who occupy the White House and Congress. You can read this stuff in Vanderbilt U professor Larry Bartels book "Unequal Democracy" or Princeton U professor Martin Gilens "Affluence and Influence" or Yale U professor Jacob Hacker's book "Winner take all politics." So, it's out there if you want to educate yourselves and vote for reform, or we can continue down the path to apathy, ignorance and a failing political state!
