BASTILLE DAY IN THE ALPS. It is tradition on the French national holiday, July 14, for a native son to try his best to win the stage of the Tour de France. Today, Frenchman David Moncoutie showed heart and out-pedaled everyone through the last day in the Alps (pictured here by Graham Watson). Viva la France! The Alps are the longest and highest peaks the racers will cross, but the Pyrennees are the steepest...and they are yet to come. I think the Tour championship will be decided on Sunday. See what's ahead at my project "The TdF for the Rest of Us":
