...I've tried to avoid finding out the result of the Tour de France stage until I was able to watch the highlights in the evening. Even during today's Prologue, it has become obvious that I will not be able to do that this year. The Tour is now so prominent across all realtime media channels that I won't be able to avoid it without totally cutting myself off from the resources I need to work. I guess that means this is the first true realtime Tour for me. Whether that will add to or detract from my enjoyment of the event ... time will tell.
