Le Tour is Finis

Which is made-up French for this:  Chris Froome took control of the Tour de France today by accelerating up the side of Mont Ventoux, shattering Alberto Contador and fellow pretenders.  In the end, even the little Colombian, Nairo Quintana, couldn't keep up.  Froome is now well-positioned to handily win the thing, even though a slew of Alps stages stand between him and Paris.

Froome will also be the second Englishman in a row to win the Tour.  Long Live the Queen.  Somebody light a fire beneath the Duchess of Cambridge -- I can't wait to see that baby.

Back to the French, today is Bastille Day.  Which is always fun, I suppose.
