    The scenery there is beyond majestic. Near the beginning of the telecast, they had a computer aided 360 degree image thing that showed the route (sorry I don't know the technical term) and it was very cool how the route wove through those mountains.

    NBC cut the coverage off before the top 3 in GC awards ceremonies...all for stock car racing.....

    Best tour in years - except for the last few days.

    College football is up next!
