^My stock ticker is in the shop.

Silken Laumann, Steve Nash and Simon Whitfield have brought benefits to Victoria, so this is a major win for us.
"Beaver, ahoy!""The bridge is like a magnet, attracting both pedestrians and over 30,000 vehicles daily who enjoy the views of Victoria's harbour. The skyline may change, but "Big Blue" as some call it, will always be there."

It seems that Lance Armstrong is being raked over the coals again with more doping allegations. I have always been a fan of his, so I am disappointed that these charges aren't going away.

There are claims that many riders on past tours participated, so if everyone is trying it why don't they just legalize doping and may the best men at it win? Yikes!

I plan on watching the Tour de France live again in a few weeks, and hopefully it will be drug free.

^ I get the reasons that people get upset about doping in sports, because it then becomes the thing for young athletes and serious amateurs to try and so forth. But there has always been a part of me that thinks - "Lance Armstrong had stage three testicular cancer that spread to his lungs, abdomen and brain. He underwent chemotherapy and had brain tumors removed by a neurosurgeon. If there is a drug regimen that helps someone who survived that regain their competitive strength, wouldn't it be almost unethical to deny them access?"

Hesjedal involved in a crash today. Will hurt his chance for a win in the Tour.

Is Ryder's Tour over?


A confident Hesjedal had talked up his chances of victory in the three-week race having triumphed at the Giro in May but the mass crash 30-km from the finish in Metz could lead to his withdrawal.

He was well placed in ninth overall - 18 seconds behind yellow jersey wearer Fabian Cancellara - before the pileup on the flat stage which was won by rising starlet Peter Sagan.

The 31-year-old Hesjedal is now down in 108th place with no hope of recovering the ground even if his wounds heal quickly.

From Ryder (about 3:30 am Pacific time, July 7)

In a car to Paris. Not really the way I envisioned it happening. Thank you for all the support, especially from my Team. @Ride_Argyle

Without a doubt, the world's most punishing athletic event. Average speeds are often over 40 km per hour for the entire event which is stunning considering that average includes gruelling mountain climbs and terrifying hairpin turns. The fact that riders can by thrown from their bikes at those speeds and get back on and continue is amazing.

It was a tough eight stage for defending champion Ryder Hesjedal. The Victoria native finished 2:23 back in 18th place, and dropped from third overall to sixth.
