Whenever I bonk I'm not so flash the next day. How come he can ride out of his skin?

Hope Flansid wins by 15 minutes. Cadels a cat.

I only started watching it full on when 24 finished. A mate rang up and said Flandis changed a bike at the top of one of the climbs? Said the commentators said he might be grabbing a heavier bike. Is that allowed? If so why not have funny decending bikes with 125cc GP bike tires on them to rail the downhills then swap out to a climbing bike at the bottom of the hills?

Seppos unpwn3d.

Woo hoo. Yeah. Yeehah. Wooo Woooooo. Go Lanc...Landis. Sorry, caught in the moment.

That yellow bike jinxed Landis.

Evans dropped back that fast back to Periero and co. I thought he was George Hincrapie for a second.

I know, I exaggerate.

Guess the suitcase wasn't quite empty was it now?

Ned Flanders is not Floyd, Ned is that Doc Ray or Doc Oc guy who is crazy
for Cervelo and had the what would Ivan basso do sig. he's a cannuck to boot.

Euro has been served up a nice big plate of crow after his
cackling yesterday, for dessert he needs a nice big ol' slice of humble pie
(like that's gonna happen).

As for the sunglass breakage ugly photo's stuff, they tried to
post the same shiite here but it got removed to the bin.

have a nice day,

marty

The only thing I can say in FLandis' behalf is if as
reported he didn't bonk (not good to do that the
nite before a big race either), ok hit the wall,
but he was suffering heat exhaustion or heat stroke
than recovery from that is pretty rapid with IVs
( I did NOT say peds) and lots of water/fluid intake.

Bjarne wasn't too happy today, guess Flandis won't be
over for a barbie (Braii Vlais) tonight.

as muhc as i still dont like the guy, top ride. if the peloton is stupid enough to let him get back that much time they deserve to get beaten.

I still think cadels a chance for a podium. hes not that far off Kloden.

and with news from compact - crank gate i checked last night and its a 39 small ring so at least i manage to mantain some shred of dignity..... dont it?

this is certainly one crazy tdf.
I guess it all goes down to the time trial.
Why did they let Landis get such an advantage?

Respect to Landis for a gutsy ride.

Thought the peleton was pretty shabby in not getting a chase organised earlier tho. Props to O'Grady too for hanging in the break for so long - even when Landis joined them and upper the pace.
