    Where do you think Lance will place in the Tour?

    The Tour is right around the corner. Lance will be the better part of 39 y/o. There is a good article
    about Lance in this months Men's Journal. Talks about all the discord between he and Contador.
    Lance says that Contador' climbing abilities are unmatchable but says his endurance is very good
    and that he'll compensate by riding smart. One thing is for sure, he definitely has Contador in his
    crosshairs. So, how do you think he'll do?

    No idea, but I am hoping some of the training tricks his people came up with trickle down to us.

    There's a good chance that Dr. Lim is mixing him up the same "cocktails" that Floyd was taking...

    Maybe because he found something that will make him go faster than anybody else ?

    It is definitely more of a "climbers tour" this year - more mountaintop finishes and no team time trial.

    Without last years team time trial, his podium spot would have been tenuous.

    2nd at Tour de Suisse was pretty good; i don't think another podium is out of the question.

    He hardly raced at all during his 7 wins, so that doesn't matter to him. His age coupled with the time he was out of the sport will be his biggest challenge.
