The 2005 Tour de France thread

Only a couple of days away now. Last call for Lance.

Should be a good one.

I LOVE the TDF.

Not such a fan of the course this year though, would like to see more of northern France personally.

Yeah, the course is unusual this year. Not much in northern France, and going clockwise for a change. It will be strange going through the Alps first - I'm so used to them being near the end.

Another difference is the first stage later today - it's not a prologue, but a small individual time trial. It should be interesting if Lance or Jan Ullrich can take the lead right away, because if one of them can, and then their team does well in the team time trial, that person could be wearing yellow for a while.

I'd really like to see if Ivan Basso can keep the polka dot jersey this year...I guess the word is that he's been focusing a LOT on his level ground speed training, and some have said at the expense of mountain training. It will be curious to see if he's still in form.

Go, Lance, Go!

Make it a lucky #7.

I know cydewaze and Mrs. Edge are watching Le Tour with bated breath...anyone else?

It's old hat to me now. I think he's overexposed.

And no, I'm not denouncing his accomplishment, it's one of the best stories in sports, but I'm just sick of his bicycle-seat-chapped ass.

I do hope he wins though.

I'd say Lance is looking good after yesterday.

Lance will wipe out on his bike and it will be funny.

10 minutes till Stage 3 starts!!

OLN's coverage has been really erratic this year so far...I can't usually watch it in the mornings because I'm at work, but the hours when it's supposed to be on in the evenings...it's not!

So how about Ullrich crapping out so far?

And Robbie McEwen today...what was possibly going through his head to make him do that??
