Yeah, very exciting. More than in many years.

I don't think I'd bet against Lance now except at somewhere around 10-1; but it's possible for Ullrich to pull it off.

I think Ullrich will win the stage, though. If he does, it's possible he'll pull enough time back from Lance to raise the team time trial question. Years of discussion ahead if that happens.

If he looks like this, Jan might as well sit up and enjoy the view.

Of all the stages the time trials (individual and team) are among my favorites. Sadly here I dont get oln except on sat...which happens to be the time trial!!!!!!! Im psyched. If these two are both in top form, which it surely looks like it, this tt will be probably be spoken of for a while. Any one know what the smallest margin of victory has been? I can only think of lemonds 8 sec(?) win.

Yup, I think that 8 seconds is the record in terms of the entire race. Well, it WAS the record through 2002.
