Americans, you are hated here

A commentator on French State TV just declared, during a pre-race show, that his greatest disappointment would be to see Americans win the top three spots in this year's Tour de France. Apparently, the fact that the race is marred by a European-wide doping scandal is of absolutely no importance.

UPDATE: To kick off the Tour de France, Americans take 2 of the 3 top spots (Hincapie and Zabriskie) and 3 of the top 10 (with Landis). French State TV is getting grumpy.
