    Brain fart about stage 20

    If the margin between Lance and Jan is, let's say, less than 5 seconds after Saturday, do you think the trailing rider will attempt a breakaway? If so, do you think the leading rider will go with him? Will the peloton give chase or just let the 2 duke it out to the finish? I know this is highly unlikely, but it would be interesting to see. Oh well, I can dream.

    Of course, there's no live OLN TV coverage of Stage 20, so if it does come down to that we'll all have to listen to Phil and Paul on the Internet.

    If it is even close, stage 20 will be crazy.
    Then came a green horse. The name of the one who rode it was Death, and hell followed right behind.

    It's not an issue though 'cause Lance won't lose 62" to JU on Saturday.
    i may have overreacted

    Stage 20 is likely to be crazy in any case. Isn't the sprinters jersey still up for grabs? No breaks will be allowed to go, and Sunday will not be the usual parade.

    It is customary to not attack the leader on the last stage into Paris. Anyone that has, has been criticized. That doesn't mean they wont. But Lance wont let that happen anyway.
