    Stage 15- SPOILER!!!

    And the only reason why I'm posting is because I'm following along with the live audio.

    I am UPSET!!! Armstrong and Mayo crashed when they were in an attack after a long downhill descent. The reason? A spectator got in the way, and they hit the spectator!

    Up until then, Armstrong, Mayo and Ullrich were neck and neck- Ullrich took off, but then waited for the two to recover.

    This is crazy!!!!!

    Dang, I am beginning to hate the spectators- they truly need a better system of caging them in or something!

    Ok, even more crazy- Armstrong is bleeding, Mayo and Armstrong catch up with Ullrich, and now Mayo counterattacks, and Armstrong overtakes both of them and they are all 7 km from the finish line! Ullrich is NOT responding to the attack!

    THIS IS CRAZY!!!!!

    Koffee,

    Lance is gonna win this one by 1:30 over Jan.
    firmly in Yellow by end of the day (unless he crashes
    again).
    Kudo's to Ullrich for sportsmanship in not attacking
    when LA was down. That was payback for 2 years
    ago when LA waited for JU.

    Lance is BACK (or he never really left!).

    He is looking good. Man my heart started beating at about 150 bpm when I read that on the live coverage.

    No spectator, he slipped from his pedal and hit the ground. This was very clear during the replays. This happened again some minutes later but now without falling of his bike. Gentleman Jan waited for Armstrong instead of taking advantage. And now it seems Armstrong is heading for his fifth victory.

    Lance won the stage by 40 sec plus 20 sec bonification for the 1st place...

    This is so crazy....

    Allthough i'm an Ullrich Fan, what Lance is doing there is so brilliant!!!

    Sad for Vino, he lost over a minute on Jan...

    What a fantastic tour!

    Ok, they didn't elaborate yet that it wasn't a spectator.

    Lucky you, got the live visual there. Keep informing us about what's going on!

    Phil and Paul still say that
    lance went down due to his bars being hooked by
    a spectator. I can't wait to watch this one.

    Lance takes stage 15, 20 second time bonus
    Ullrich takes 4th no time bonus. approx 1:15 deficit
    to Lance.

    what a race.

    I am emotionally spent!

    I've been screaming for like an hour now! I didn't do my morning ride- I got a ride planned for the full day tomorrow... I will have to slip someone my cell phone number so I can keep getting the updates, because otherwise, I will not be riding at all- make that, I won't be riding for the rest of the week!

    I am thrilled for his victory. Do you have the standings yet of the top 5 finishers you can post for us?

    My wife called and said that it appeared that lance
    broke brake/shifter in the fall. She said it was swivelling all
    over the place.

    can you imagine what Lance would have done had he
    not fallen?

    Official results have Ullrich at 1:07 behind Lance.
    followed by Vino who is 2:45 behind LA.

    Apparently spectator was reaching for feedbag and hooked
    lances pedals.

    What a race. Kudos to Ullrich for maintaining the gentleman's position of waiting for his competitor. Lance is awesome. I don't know if I can watch many more of these - may not be able to take all the excitement and emotion.

    Kudos to Ullrich and the other riders in the group who showed such outstanding sportsmanship by waiting for LA when he went down.
