While I don't know if Lance can win this race in his present condition and amount of training. I think his ego will drive him to 2nd or 3rd place overall. Although he is claiming to be shooting for an 8 hour time which would usually put him around the 5th place finisher. This course is more of an endurance race than a technical orientation which is just the kind of race that he can do well at if his fitness level is up to the challenge.
Also an interesting note regarding Landis race last year. If he wouldn't have crashed he may well have won the race even though Dave Wiens past him on most of the more technical sections. Landis would pass Dave on the less technical cardio sections.
