    I'd like to see Lance set the new record and Tyler win in '05.

    gotta get the record...but it would be funny if an American rider beat out an American rider for the sixth record setting TdF win...

    How about a tie. If they both won the same number of stages, both had the same Green and KoM points and then crossed the line in Paris in a dead heat photo finish, it'd be the perfect tie.

    But I'm inclined to agree with Regular Guy.

    operative word is prefer. I think Lance will win. After watching him suffer last year I would prefer to see Tyler win.

    Should the poll not read "If Lance or Tyler was to be second to Jan in the 2004 TdF, which would you prefer"?

    I shall don my flamesuit and adopt the defensive position

    Lance out of those two.

    I want Lance to win it, but I think Tyler has a good shot at a podium finish.

    Lance all the way

    I'd like to see Lance take the record and have an American own the TDF. It would really cheese off the french! If not Lance, let see Jan Ullrich take it. he's been right there year after year. That would at least be fitting.

    LA will dominate! Tyler will finish 2nd. T-mobile will fight among themselves for 3rd.

    I'm guessing because he won a stage, and finished just off the podium (all with a broken collar bone) in the 2003 TdF:

    Damn, if Hamilton would have broken his back, he could have won! Maybe next year!

    Well if Lance wins Trek has got to do something special for their 2005 OCLV bikes.Giant has a new carbon frame coming out next year so if Jan wins I expect alot of people to want that bike.I already want one!

    oh and Tyler will crash at least once in the Tour.Just like every other year.

    33 is getting up there for a potential tour winner. Zoetemelk won it when he was almost 34. Then again, Tyler is no Zoetemelk.

    I think Jan has a good enough team that he has a real good shot at it. I don't know if LA still has the focus.

    PS my very inconsiderate niece scheduled here wedding for the 10th of July in California, so now we have to do a whole vacation thing, to California no less, during the tour. Nobody we're staying with has cable either. I dread monitoring the progress on my cell phone browser.
