Will Lance Win?

Will he win his 7th consecutive Tour De France next month? He says that he hasn't been riding too much -even his mom is concerned. They've made the course more challenging too. Can he bounce back after a divorce and have the right mental readiness? What do you think? Personally, I think it's very possible, but what about the die hard that has been working hard all season long for the event?

1) slow

2) weak





I do, however, have a rich fantasy life.

He was already divored at his last Tour so I can't see that being a problem. Plus the best way to beat people is by playing possum.

Doubtful.


I think he won so strong last year that he has a great chance again.

Luck on his team's side, meaning no major setbacks, and I see another win.

Lance has been known to psyche-out the opposition before.... I havn't been keeping up with the pre-Tour action; who are the contenders?

Coming back from cancer of the nuts deathbed makes a divorce look like nothing.

He'll win.
