Just wonder what was so nice about that stage? It was a disgrace from Armstrong...what did he say again?"...This man is bad for cycling..." Of course, "this man" had been the only one who testified and told the truth about Ferrari's behaviour...
Good choice of a "breakaway stage".
I prefer the guts (or in Spanish "cojones" and French "couilles" ) of guys like Jacky Durand, who won stages in Tour de France after 100, 130, 150 kilometres of breakaway.
Just to show I do not deny Armstrong's talent, his breakaway under the rain in Oslo at the World Championships in 1993 was among the greatest feats I saw in professional cycling.
But please give me a break with Big Daddy's behaviour at the Tour against Simeoni...
