    Scary picture of Lance

    Well, scary if you had found yourself between him and the finish line on Stage 15!

    Sorry about the quality of the photo -- this is what I scanned from my local paper since I wasn't able to find a cleaner copy of this shot online. The determination on his face is just unreal...

    I clipped a copy of this photo out of the newspaper and taped it on the glass pane of our office door at work. It should be an illustration in dictionaries, next to the word 'determination'.

    I'm afraid to ask how you've come to recognise that look.

    Sheer determination. I occasionally have that look on my face, but I look like I'm ready to kill someone...

    Speaking of looks, did anyone else notice Lance gave Mayo the same "Let's go big boy" look that he gave to JU after he responded and passed Mayo.

    i noticed that look zack. it was even more prolonged than the one he gave jan. i wonder at what point that photo was taken? as soon as he popped up, he seemed absolutely pissed. once his foot clipped out, had i been the rest of the field i would've just stopped and let him blow by, because nothing other than that could happen with the amount of adrenaline that had to be in lance's system. what an amazing stage; what an amazing race.

    I noticed that also on the replay.

    How would you like to be in the lead, look back, and see that coming up behind you?

    If it happened to me I'd sit up and get the hell out of his way

    I did think it was cool how he gave the French rider a pat on the back as he blew past him.
