Favorite TdF 2005 Post?

It may be a bit early, but do you have a favorite post here on BikeForums for this TdF?

I would nominate the post that suggests that instead of posting on bikeforums the Director Sportif for TMobile should be thinking about how to get his team to work together on some attacks the next day.

Will the real Walter Godefroot please stand up..

Anything by alanbikehouston. Each one made me bust a gut laughing with how much he thinks he knows about the tour and what slackers all the contenders are because they can't will themselves past Lance. That, and I knew Laggard wouldn't be far behind telling him to go away. It was good advice, but alas, to no avail yet.

fore0121,
You forgot to add Devil as another guy stalking ABH's every post.

No, this is not a personal attack, you will see that I have also had issues with ABH's posts but Devil and Laggard are seldom far from any of his posts..

DocRay and his "Tours over: Wife bonks on stage 16"

That cracked me up.

Wow shes a stunner.

Wonder how many bike accidents she has caused on Basso training rides with his team. I can see it now as they pedal by the team car on the side of the road, she waves to her brother and the rest of the team goes down like dominos.

Mazzolini was taped during a phone tap with his Doctor Carlo Santuccione, known in the Peleton as "Ali the Chemist", speaking in code about andriol and concerns about his hematocrit, and EPO saying he "took 4000 units subcutaneously and was racing on saturday, would he be ok"

Nice.... Basso's sisters going to marry a doper, but hey, who isn't on something.

This guy is Dilucas Doctor as well.

No, seriously, he's just a strict weight weenie...
I also agree that DocRay's post Wife Bonks on Stage 16 is pretty strong.

press releases, news clips, and some friends involved in the sport. I get info from a lot of sources. You guys would be surprised how many amateurs and div II guys get busted, all the time, how many Pro Tour team members are involved in court cases, extraditions etc... The deeper you dig, the uglier it really gets.

A lot of court docuements have been made public, but they are hard to find, and not translated to English, and it usually older info, about guys who have retired recently. They were heros to me when I was younger, so a lot of it is depressing too.

I guess I have never paid much attention to doping but for the occasional allegation popping up in the news or something that makes a splash in the international stage..

I really enjoyed the one that stated all T-Mobile needed to do was constantly attack Lance...first send Kloden and make Lance chase, then send Vino, then Ullrich and Lance would crack. It seemed to suggest that attacking Lance was as easy as falling off a log.

I'm pretty sure it was Devil but I can't be 100% sure.

The one where I had to come up with my favorite post in the TDF. That was classic.

But don't you think that would have done it? Clearly Lance wouldn't have chased Kloden unless he was more of a GC threat, etc., but it seems like Rasmussen, Ullrich, Basso et al could have certainly put him under some pressure.
