I don't think you have to be a cycling fan to appreciate these. Is the Tour de France not the most picturesque sporting event in the world?

Not sure. Right now I'm watching Maria Sharapova play her first round match at the US Open, which is also a very picturesque sporting event.

For those of you who think the pro road cyclist aren't tough guys, sheck out these photos.

This was one of the guys who got hit by the car.

In case you're wondering, both survived the race and will be riding into Paris tomorrow.

I heard the narrators comment about one rider being thrown into a barbed wire fence. That pic is really cringeful. :shock:

I don't think he got hit by the car. He hit another bike and then got catapulted into the barbed wire fence.

Thanks, Jazz. With Boone as a patron saint, we can afford new goal posts every ten years or so. :)

Speaking of great sports photographers, SI is doing a series on Walter Iooss, Jr.

In case you haven't seen the link in the front page, check out photo #17 titled "Three Kings". Iconic is the word that comes to my mind.
