    Stage 19 *SPOILER*

    Didn't put SPOILER in title and don't know if I can edit it. So if you don't want to know anymore stop reading.

    ****************************************************



    I can hardly stand it!!!!! I'm stuck at work and have to settle for internet updates of the stage. We have dish network at work but no OLN. I have three sites open with instant updates and I'm wearing out the refresh button. Lance and Jan are constanly back and forth by only a few seconds.

    Yeah it will definitely come down to Stage 20 on this year's race. They're within something like 62 sec.... That's not much at all. I'm a big Lance fan for his, hopefully, 5th consecutive win. Jan! Get out of here!

    As for Hamiliton, I give him the best of luck to get back up in the top 5. He is one of the strongest guys I know.... riding with a broken collar bone! That's nuts! Do anyone know how he's doing, healing-wise??

    Jan went down. He's up but lost a good bit to LA. Tyler stands to move into fourth overall.

    I can't remember ever seeing a look of such unalloyed joy on Armstrong's face as he crossed a finish line. A real indication of how much pressure he was actually feeling.

    This has been truly memorable.

    Yes, Congrats to Lance, great Tour !!

    I'm a little sad, it would have been Jans ITT and he would have deserved a second stage win...

    But overall a fascinating Tour

    Cheers, i'm getting some beer now

    You need to post SPOILER on your title. The none OLNers will get you.


    I hated to see Jan go down. I would have rather seen a battle to the line.

    I cant wait to see the stage. I listened on OLN, and thought I was going to soil myself. Congratulations to both LA and Jan. What a great tour.

    Five is Alive.....! What a tour!

    Great race today in the TT. Too bad that Jan had to fall but it did not look like it was going to make any difference anyway. That was one nasty looking course and to still keep those speeds up is truly amazing. These guys are sooooo goood!

    Oops, sorry about that!!! Yeah I hated to see Ullrich go down too. I want Lance to win, but a close race sure is exciting. How about that Tyler Hamilton, up to 4th place overall. You Go Boy!!!!

    Don't blame people for getting excited. This was a big day and people are letting everyone know about it.

    It was a great stage,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, again!! It has been the most entertaining Tour I can remember. I just sent Jan an email, to congratulate him for his fine effort this year. I look for him to put a streak of wins together soon. His address is jan@janullrich.de .

    im not angry
    I don't know why you thought I was
    Its just confusing with all the unorganization
    Its like on the speedtv.com forums... there will be 20 threads about the same race. It completely messes up the discussion.

    Too bad it was rainy!
    A great TT though.

    I think that if it was dry, Lance would have won the TT and it would have been a record average speed

    I know what you mean. It's like the "Im new to riding, what bike do you recommend" thing. People need to run a search for their topic first. This is understandable though,,,,,,, this is huge.

    Jan sure looked nervous in the starting gate. It almost looked as though he was shivering. Maybe he was cold from the rain but the look on his face was not very comfortable. Lance on the other hand looked very comfortable today and was waving to someone in the crown before he left the gate. A sure sign that he was relaxed.

    I thought that when I originally posted the "Five is Alive" thread that I was the first one to post anyting about the stage today so did not have another post to sign to. Sorry if I ruined for anyone but they were going to see the result 2 seconds later when they opened up any of the other posts anyway. Not a big deal but glad to see that there are this many people even interested in cycling and the tour. Let's keep it alive!

    I think the stress was really effecting Jan. I read that he didnt even get out of bed this morning. He reviewed the course by video tape, and used the call backs from his team for updates on the course conditions. He must have been trying to call himself down this morning.

    It was obvious after the time checks of todays race Jan and Lance were virtually the same stregnth. Lance has the better power to weight ratio so he was more dominant in the mountains when he felt good.

    What a dramatic tour indeed. As much as I like the 6-8 minute spreads it is not very thrilling to watch when the gap is so wide. This year is a real treat.

    Lance, and Tyler has once again shown that a pair of americans can dominate the Europeans. Good show!
    I'm just as impressed with Tyler as Lance.
