Watching the Tour is always a hassle.  There’s the short-term cable package, wading through hours of DVR’d footage- and trying not to hear what Greg Lance Tyler the racer of the moment did that day.  Wouldn’t it just be easier to fly over, watch the race first-hand, and be a part of the spectacle?  All from the comfort (and featuring the excellent meals) of a proper French chalet?  Well, thanks to Headsweats and here’s your chance!
