I think I'm really starting to like this guy. Of course I want to see LA go for and get 6. I also hope that Jan makes his attempt at 6 a big challenge. The sportsmanship that these guys have is absolutely amazing.
This is what Jan had to say about his crash in the ITT:
"I'm a bit sad because I could have won the stage. I wasn't really thinking about the yellow jersey. That would have been possible only if Lance fell and I didn't wish for that to happen. That would not have been fair."
That's a classy thing to say. In retrospect the entire tour was quite the spectacle and I would have to say that all involved are true champions and though LA took the yellow jersey, all the competitors ride away from the centenary as winners.
P.S. Except maybe Petacchi, I didn't like how he jumped off the bike on the first hill. Somebody who rides as much as these guys really should be able to climb at least one hill.
