Kloden is a wild card, definitely, and he usually performs better in the Alps, too.

But Landis already has a couple of minutes on him, and I really can't see him losing time to Kloden. And after this morning's events, Landis must be very confident in his abilities and how he feels. He seemed quite unfazed by the Pyrenees, too. I expect him to attack on L'Alpe d'Huez and put a stranglehold on the Tour...

Okay, after today I rescind my prediction. The Top 5 is just far too strong for a wildcard to pull it out. Look out for Cadel Evans.

A collapse of epic proportions this morning for Landis. I can't believe how much he got blown out. There's no way he can make that time up between tomorrow and the time trial. One person ahead of him could have a bad day, but certainly not all of them.

Kloden, Evans, and Menchov are still up there, but now Sastre is in a good position.

But wouldn't it be something if Pereiro wins this after being down by 30 minutes? Insane Tour.

Sya what you will, but there was something about watching armstrong race that was remarkable.


The moment that always sticks out was that Time Trail an Alpe de Huez where he passed Ivan Basso.


Granted his time has come and gone, but I do miss having Lance in the race at some level

Care for a mulligan?

Great tour. Well done to Floyd Landis for that unbelievable ride in the Alps, and especially with a bum hip!!

Can't wait for next year!

was in Paris anyway so saw them whooshing over the Champs Elyssee and I must say that even though it is still a crap sport to go watch this was one hell of a magnificent Tour
