Bruyneel to US TV for Tour de France

Team Astana won't be riding the Tour de France this year, but team manager Johan Bruyneel will be involved with the race anyway. The Belgian will serve as commentator for American television Versus for the last week of the race, which includes the Alps stages, such as the mountaintop finish on L'Alpe d'Huez. During the first two weeks of the Tour, the Belgian will be in the US promoting his new book, "We Might As Well Win", which was issued in the US on June 3.

Astana spokesman Philippe Maertens confirmed to Cyclingnews Bruyneel's upcoming TV appearance, noting that Bruyneel "has a good relationship with the Americans since Armstrong's time," and wryly adding, "after all, he was 'free' in July."
