I think Lance just won the Tour. I don't see JU gaining 1' 07" in the ITT.

Tomorrow is a full rest day

Oh man..I was screaming my head off when I saw Lance go down! Much respect to Jan Ullrich, Tyler Hamilton, and the rest of the group for playing the sport like gentlemen and not kicking someone when they're down due to unavoidable circumstances

Lance just verified himself, that a musette bag hooked his handlebars.

Whooo hooo!

Rest day! That means I can do my full day ride in peace!

Go Lance! I really hope he doesn't lose the lead, but he still needs to kick butt in that time trial to ensure that he comes out on top.

I'm still being cautious. I hope no one thinks he's got it bagged- I'm sure Ullrich will be giving it everything he's got now that he's so far behind!

What Ullrich, Tyler etc. did was nothing special. Remember 2001 when Ullrich fell, Armstrong did the same... This is what i like on this sport... Its really gentlemen like... Except Basso, who seemed to push after Lance fell..

Hoping for a nice ITT on Saturday!

P.S: Can someone explain the word "Kudos" to me?

It means "good job" or "good for you".

Ohhhhh!!!!!!!!! I just love cycling!!! Where else are you going to get sportsmanship like this and suspence??!!!

GREAT GREAT stage!

But I still think it is to close to say that LA has it in the bag. JU is amazing in TT, so who knows????
Gotta love it, baby!!

I actually expected Mayo and Zubeldia to continue the
attack when lance went down.
I heard that Tyler was exhtolling everone to not attack
while the maillot Jaune was down.

All I can say is....unbelievable.

Can't wait to get home tonight and watch it for myself. I may have to close my eyes when they show Lance falling. Otherwise I may have to HURT the television. Sounds like this stage will be another classic, to be replayed for years to come.

The Time trial is looming large. If LA was really dehydrated, and that was the reason he couldn't keep up with Ullrich, then he should be able to stay within striking distance of Ullrich. The winner of the TT will get 20 seconds, but I am not sure if there is any time given to second place. If Lance stays more than a minute up then Ullrich will have to beat Lance by mroe than 40 seonds to win the tour. One really nice piece of news is that if Lance wins he won't have won without winning a stage.

Like a person mentioned in this thread... I wonder how well lance would have done if he didn't fall. Talk about a bad time to fall... right at the start of an attack

What?
The TTs don't give time bonuses.

@Koffee Brown:

Nothing special
After he fell he got out of his saddle, seemed to push very hard and slipped out of his cleats...

This is a terrible thing to say, but I think LA may have crushed his last gonad when he slipped out of his pedal! I hope that his boy didn't hit the top tube.

However, perhaps that's what got him going!

Maybe the fact that he only has one is what kept him
in the race and not doubled over on the side of the road
singing soprano (falsetto?).

When they were interviewng Lance after the stage and asked him about the fall - did Lance and OLN let the sh_t word slip through??? Very appropriate Lance - I said the same thing when it happened.
