Once a World Champion, always a world champion. Right? I had the opportunity to see le Tour de France this year in person and I loved every minute of it. Thor Hoshovd is the current World Champion in the rainbow banded jersey (top right). He spent the first week in le maillot jaune which, as you can see, is now occupied by last years world champ, Cadel Evans. This was the lead out for the first of eight laps around the Champs Élysées. Cadel is now conquering the Rockies in Colorado at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge.
