    I'd love it.

    Will it happen? Probably not.

    the ventoux is to steep, i think wiggins should worry more about kloden then about overtaking armstrong, it sort of depends on who wants to do stuff that day

    really, the tour is contadors to lose.

    well the time trial pretty much finished it. Contador pretty much showed he is miles ahead of everyone, also I do not know why everyone is picking on contador for being a bad teammate, tbh it is lance armstrong who's pulled the jerk moves so far

    hella lame. i haven't been able to watch anything. i've been in a work-void of like xmillion hours of interviews.
    at least they did until about 1.5 km from the end. Contador attacked it.

    Was that the Tourmelet?

    If so i was sitting, watching that... and was like. seriously. no one's attacking? what kinda ******** is this. **** you stupid peleton. have you no balls? this is not the Grande Boucle, this is the ************* TdF.

    but then again, if you didn't notice. Jens Voigt is... also a beast.

    "Jens was a math prodigy in elementary school, putting “Attack!” in every blank space on all his tests. It would be the wrong answer for everybody else, but Jens is able to solve any problem by attacking."

    Lance also has an incredible amount of mental and physical toughness. He won't go down without a fight. His body may be worn down but he has an uncanny ability to raise his cycling level when he needs to.

    a few HCs and we'll see who's team is gonna propel their GC competitor to the front... i don't think contador will go that easily.
    Agreed, considering he is in 3rd. This may be like a few years back when Jan Ullrich and his one teammate (can't remember who it was) were both contending and it seemed like neither were going to back down. It hurt them in the end. I could see a similar thing happen here, as contador has been a favorite for a while, and Armstrong isn't just going to give up and assume the role as his guard unless he is out of it for sure. Tomorrow may be an indicator of how Armstong really is doing, though with only two major climbs, it may not be a huge factor. I have off tomorrow and instead of sleeping in, I'm waking up to catch the stage.
