    After pondering this list, and without having read the race report, anybody else thinking what I'm thinking? That the big dogs were watching each other and somehow let an on-form CH get away for the win, and the 4 seconds isn't enough to worry the Valverdes, Savoldellis, Kashechkins, etc., of the bunch?
    Don't want to take A THING away from Chris, but Cadel Evans is right there...Let's see if CH can hold the lead, or even wants to.

    That is AWESOME. Way to be Chris Horner!

    Hey, maybe Cadel can provide Chris some support to keep the jersey? I know Chris will be loyally pulling Cadel when TdF time rolls around. Whad'Ya say, Davitimon-Lotto?? Is that a good strategy? Yeah, it is. Thanks for listening!

    Go Chris! Become the third Yank to win a Romandie! more

    Yeah, this is huge. And it's not like he was in a breakaway that did not threaten the overall and so he was "allowed" to win. This is real, baby. Way to go!

    Chris has his character flaws but he is one great bike racer. I hope that some of the Lance lovers get clue and realize that we may not have a Tour de France dominator anymore but we (Americans) have some great racers in Europe right now.

    Chris is in great form right now!
    Can't wait to see Hincapie, Landis, and Horner at the Tour.

    I honestly believe that Hincapie can get podium. We know Landis can do it!
    oooops!...almost forgot about Levi

    If by some crazy chance that an American wins this year...that will make it 8 straight years that Americans have won the Tour. Boy will the French media love that to happen. Who woulda ever thunk it?

    I guess Landis and Hincapie would be my picks to pull off the win. That's my opinion...and I realize that some think Hincapie has zero chance. I respect that. Basso is going to be awfully tough to beat.

    Getting off topic!

    I think all you Hincapie guys are in for a big disapointment come July. He'll be working for Salvodelli or Popo like he did Lance
    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.

    Anyone think it sucks that the leaders jersey at Romandie isn't green anymore?

    Seems like everyones as psyched as I am about this. Long overdue for Horner. He definately earned it.

    As for the TdF I dont think George has a shot, Landis really is a big question that could possibly pull the upset though.

    Awesome ride for Chris, I hope he gets a stage win in the TDF.

    Ullrich off the back...well it's still early days!
