The closest I have been to Monaco in France is Toulouse, so no.

Anyone else think that Shaun Kelly is deadset the worst commentator going? You can barely understand his extremely boring voice and I seriously can't remember the last time that he said something insightful or interesting, espeically considering he has ridden the tour several times. Reckon the rest of them are awesome though.
We get two Brits in Phil Ligget and Paul Sherwen and it is basically a Lance Armstrong love-in. Which is fine, but eventually you want to grab the bucket.
