This year's Tour de France is in full swing. Even as you read these words, riders from around the world are currently pedaling up impossibly steep mountains in the French countryside. Winning the coveted yellow jersey, or even the polka dot jersey (which goes to the best climber in the race), is truly an achievement.

Now, you--yes, you--have the chance to don the yellow jersey, without having to do all the work and training and sweating! Yes, thanks to the wonder of video games, which make experiences that are otherwise impossible to mere mortals like us, we can now travel from one end of France to the other in Tour de France 11: The Official Game (available now for the iPhone and iPad).

Cover of Madden NFL 12: It's A Done Deal 12

It's official: Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis will appear on the box cover of this year's Madden (due in stores on August 30th). He's only the fourth running back to appear on the cover in Madden history. And he got there because you put him there.

EA Sports, along with partners SportsNation and ESPN, asked Madden fans to go online and vote for one of 32 possible cover candidates. Along the way, after three rounds of voting that saw showdowns like Mark Sanchez vs. Drew Brees (Brees won) and Aaron Rodgers vs. Ndamukong Suh (the number one-seeded Rodgers won), the field of 32 had been whittled down to just four players: Rodgers versus Hillis, and Michael Vick versus Adrian Peterson.
