The Tour De France epic is over again for another year. And what an epic it was. The 2009 Tour had more competition than you could shake a stick at!! Lance Armstrong was back after a four year retirement to show us he is still made of the right stuff. There were seconds between most of the leaders in the final week. And the last real stage (20) finished decisively on a mountain top.
Mark Cavendish magnificently winning the final Paris stage
taking this years total to 6 stage wins and 10 overall.
It may not always feel this way but competition is a good thing. In sport and business competition brings out the best in our abilities. Competitors help us focus on a target, drives our strategy and brings determination to succeed.
