    allez Floyd Landis!

    maillot jaune on the road after a horrible day in the alps where he conceded 10 minutes.

    that's the mark of a champion, guys. he's getting no help and asking for none.

    that's what seperates guys like landis from candy-asses like bobby julich and also-rans who always find a way to lose like hincapie.

    Forza Floyd Landis!

    Perhaps you may have wanted to put the word "SPOILER" in your title. But I do agree with you. The guy has b*lls!

    This has really been an entertaining race this year. End of domination by disco has really opened the door for others. Floyd's effort today has been epic!

    from letour.fr:

    "Yellow Jersey For A Six-Pack Of Beer

    After Floyd Landis regained the lead of the Tour de France at the top of L’Alpe d’Huez he decided that he wanted a beer to celebrate the moment. On the road down to his hotel, his team car pulled over and the American traded a yellow jersey for a six-pack of beer with a spectator."

    Maybe that's why he bonked - he had a hangover!

    This is like Chiapucci in 1992 on the way to Sestriere, only better!

    <whinny voice>hey this is a spoiler...you should be banned...then burned at the cross...then peed on. Damn you people posting spoilers</whinny voice>

    Ok sorry back to reality. Guy has a pair and today he is using them...seriously though he had to do something, he wasn't going to get 8 min or whatever in the TT. Even if he "only" gets 4 or 5 min back today he still has a shot at the podium with a great TT. Lets hope he doesn't crack and if he doesn't that this effort doesn't significantly impact his TT performance.

    Well he won the stage...but 5:35 on Sastre has Sastre ahead of him by 0:47...keep in mind Floyd took 1:10 out of Sastre in the other ITT. I can't wait to watch the TT on Sat now.

    Who said this TdF was going to be boaring?

    So unless something really wierd happens on a pretty flat stage tomorrow or into Paris which they don't race for the GC right? Anyway that brings us 3 riders with a shot going into the final TT. Pereiro, Sastre 0:11 back and Flandis 0:31 back. Kloden is 2:29 back and I don't buy that he is going to take 2 min out of Floyd in the TT.

    Did anyone catch the announcers call Floyd Flandis yesterday...I was like cool they read BF.

    God. Truly an epic stage. This is why the TDF is so great, so compelling.

    Wow! What a way to battle back. I thought Furious Flyod was probably toast after the last stage, but this is terrific news!

    One of the greatest stages in history! WOW! I have a feeling tomorrow's stage is going to be interesting, considering the TT prowness of Landis.
