Part of the process of truly loving yourself involves breaking the curse of your false idols that you love more than yourself. By simply watching or tuning into the Tour De France you are bowing down to winning is the only thing that matters. So you will be blinded by the bright lights, idolizing self haters, wishing you weren't yourself, getting defensive of your idol, crying when your idol loses, crying when your idol dies, and potentially killing yourself like Robin Williams when your idol Lance Armstrong turns out to be a self hating subordinate to negative energy fraud.
Pro cycling, pro sports, and pro athletes don't deserve respect. Pro cycling is not a real job, it serves the human race the same as porn, masturbation, drug dealing, and prostitution. The only way the Tour de France could one day be worth watching is when the riders start to state true love is ourselves and winning doesn't matter. Until then it will be hidden motors, blood doping, lies, manipulation, fraud, and bullshit.
If you want to see France turn off the TDF, go to work and take the money you saved up for that month instead of watching self haters try and win your love and buy a plane ticket. See Paris for yourself, and go fuck a hot French girl.
That is all.
