    Need to find the end overall results for the TDF from '99 to '02.

    I'm interested in what Lance's overall lead was during the last 4 tours compared to this years.

    If starting from 1999 on the time between him and the 2nd place overall rider has been less and less every year he will have an even more diffcult time winning next years TDF.

    Can someone provide a link to where I need to look. I'm having a heck of a time trying to find it.

    Thanks.

    From memory only:
    1999 - 7:07
    2000: 6:01
    2001: 6:44
    2002: 7:17
    2003: 1:01

    I may be wrong on one or two of the above... sorry, no refferences.

    That's pretty good that you've got it from memory- I just knew to say "a lot".

    Joe, even if you're wrobng on the times or not, it looks like the pattern has been up & down. So next year he should have a larger time gap between him and the 2nd place overall rider. If the pattern remains consistant. Hopefully it does and he's able to win a 6th in a row.

    I don't really see it as a pattern. Its not like Armstrong was trying to gain time on every oppurtunity. He probably could have won by 10 minutes on a couple of his tours. Once he found a stable lead gap, he played defensive.
