I wish I had OLN.

I used to watch it when it was on ESPN

Every evening I would watch the recap.

Led me to stupidly close to $1500 on a bike.

I love my bike

I am following it here. In fact, I think many Dutch(wo)men are following it as the Tour is quite big here. Of course, the Dutch Rabobank team already has had loads of bad luck, losing 2 members during the first race in a fall.

BTW, I just read that Petacchi has already won for a third time this year. Nevertheless, I still think that Armstrong will win the Tour again this year. He's very strong in the individual races and in the mountains.

C ya!

Marty

Jeff - me too. I did not have OLN last year. This year I am in heaven.

I think Lance will probably take the lead on Saturday. Postal was flying through the Team Time Trial last night. Can't wait for tonights rebroadcast of today's stage

uh oh for Lance.



[q]
Armstrong no longer bookies' favourite

LONDON (Reuters) - For the first time in four years, Lance Armstrong is not favourite to win the Tour de France, bookmakers William Hill say.


They now make Germany's Jan Ullrich 4-6 favourite with Armstrong at 11-10 and Kazakh Alexander Vinokourov at 14-1.


With a week to go, Armstrong leads Ullrich by only 15 seconds. [/q]

this is a cool photo of Lance:
