TdF 2013: Great Moments in Commentary. A Prologue, plus Stages 1 to 7

Prologue

For three weeks in July (usually), I love the Tour: There is France. There is scenery. There is drama. There's often some cows, and maybe a few dogs. There is also some cycling. And some cyclists. But mostly, for me, there is the commentary team.
