I like all the crap Allan gets about not knowing anything about bike racing. They always remind me of that old Saturday Night Live phrase "Jane you ignorant ****."

Both Golden Moments. First one for a full thread of clever comments from BF members, second one for best single statement. Chickenpockistan had me laughing out loud.

and Damn, that Basso woman is hot. Thanks for that pic!

No. I don't even think it was possible. Look at it this way...let's say Basso attacks, Lance isn't the only guy who needs to go after him and the rest of the guys are going to get just as burnt (or more so) than he is...OK, for the sake of argument let's say Ullrich has enough in him to counter attack once they bridge up to Basso...Basso will be toast and Ullrich is gambling that Lance will sure didn't look to me like that was going to happen.

In order for an attack to work you must at least be as fit as the guy you are attacking so you can break him...IMO, none of those guys had it in them. It looked to me that they tried to put him under pressure but he had a response every time.
Fredo, you're my older brother and I love you...but don't ever take sides, with anyone, against the family again...ever.

Yeah, I agree with you. I was just waiting for the stage to start and the Lance Chronicles was on and I was struck on how both in this year's first ITT and in the Alpe D'Huez time trial, Lance passed each of his chief rivals. That shows a lot of dominance.

Given that, what do you think are the odds are that his success is not completely natural - that there is a chemical component? Reading Lance Armstrong's War by Daniel Coyle, he is certainly leaning that way.
