    Lance Armstrong going for his 4th TdF !!

    Who's following the Tour De France !!
    Lance and Heras were quite the combo today.
    Lance was offering the stage to Hera but Belocki was too close for comfort.
    I think Lance will be wearing yellow till the end!
    go Lance!!
    Found a cool site to check out :
    http://www.nike.com/yellow/
    Nike has some cool tools, things to download. I already printed up a poster. I think it used a lot of ink, but it's worth it!!

    Lance is simply awesome. Did you see how he just dropped all those other specialist climbers like they were weekend riders, they were getting shelled out the back so fast looked like they were going backwards.
    It must be very demoralising I guess.
    What was I doing watching the box during the day? yep I bunked off work

    It's amazing how the media was trying sooo hard to make it look like Lance was beatable this year, and that there were 'cracks' in his armour, meanwhile, the mountain stages had not even started yet. Silly silly.

    We are all witnessing the culmination of the mystery and hoopla surrounding the tour de france coupled with a rider like Armstrong whom is very disciplined and genetically gifted and focused on the science of cycling. Add to that the emotions and love for the sport and you have an incredible combination. There is no one like him. He has beaten cancer. He has used cycling to face his demons. He is simply an incredible human being and a joy to watch. Stage 11 was one of the most incredible sports feats I have seen. Vive la Lance!
    Vive la Heras!


    Stand and Deliver.

    Thats because Lance having a weakness makes better news than the same old stuff we have been hearing for the last 3 years

    Lance would probably have more of a race on his hands if Roberto Heras was on another team IMO he deserved the win today.

    cheers

    I agree that Heras should have won the stage today. Lance would have let him had Belocki not been on his tail till the end. It was cool that Lance commented about this at the post-stage interview, saying Heras deserved the win.
