Tour De France Or USA Indoor Championships?

Should I watch the Tour De France Or USA Indoor Championships?


Tour De France coverage in France is A+ on television and in the newspapers.

Here’s the event site and you can follow some of the riders’ data- live race data.

Right now, I’m sitting in front of the television which is featuring excellent commentary and coverage of the Tour right. At this point, they’re hammering Riccardo Ricco’s positive EPO test and Saunier Duval‘s withdrawl.

On my lap is my lap-top, which is displaying 4-mixed relay heats from the USA Indoor Championships live video.

– Do you think to continue in Zepto Team the next seasson?

For sure. I will skate for Zepto. This year they start to get some good results with me, and Reyon Kay at the WIC in Wolvega. The team manager Jorg Dietrich is one of the best people in the world of skating and I really like to work with him, so it’s a good relationship

You can also find a report and pictures from the Hamburg Marathon-

In the final kilometer, Kwinten took off for a long sprint to surprise his opponents, but was caught and directly passed by Maarten Swings (Orana team). But in the final meters Kwinten was able to pass Maarten again and could claim the victory.
