Sheller's bike shop Lexington: Tour de France 2012 highlights (w/ video)

Follow the 99th Tour de France with our bike shop Louisville, as the race approaches the end of its first week.
There were plenty of unexpected news developments in the race's lead-up this year.  This year has been marked by a number of special situations including  injuries, changes of teams, and doping charges that stripped Tour de France legend Lance Armstrong of his titles.
The beginning of the race was also full of excitement, with a few crashes, such as a multi-bike pile-up that included Olympic hopeful Mike Cavendish, in the closing of Stage 4. Cavendish emerged from the crash uninjured, but unhappy.
Germany's Andre Greipel won Stage 4, and he came through the finish roaring with emotion over his 1st-ever victory in the Tour de France. He came through victorious again in Stage 5, pulling in front in the final hundred meters in what he called "the hardest sprint of my life."
