Come on guys no talk about this... too busy with the politics.
Looks like tomorrow or tuesday will be a good day for lance to break off. He said he felt pretty bad after 2days ride, hopefully it wears off

All depends if there's a cute supermodel to tear him away from the pack... the same way he was torn away from his first wife and kids.

OK, so I don't know the whole story... I'm just not as impressed by celebrities whose marriages fail. That seems like a big sacrifice to pay for fame and fortune.

I read his book (It's not about the bike) and he really praised his wife for sticking with him through his cancer struggle. So I was really surprised to hear they split up. I'm not sure that what we hear is fact or heresay - remember that there's about 100 million europeans who would like nothing more than to tarnish his reputation. That's a lot of people. I'd be interested to know what is fact and what isn't - but then again, I wouldn't. It's not any of my business. If my experience means anything, our heros' personal lives tend to be disturbing.

That said, I hope he wins this Tour. What a legacy to the world's toughest bike race. Centuries from now, he'll be remembered as a legend to the race and bicycling in general the way Babe Ruth is a legend to baseball, especially if he wins this one - and I have a feeling people will disregard his divorce the way people now disregard Ruth's gluttonous lifestyle.

Yes i agree, as long as he doesnt pull a barry bonds

I doubt it, that would tremendously dissapoint me. But even if he did, I wonder how many people would even remember that? They did eventually remove the asterisk next to Roger Maris' home run record, you know - even though extra games do in fact mean an unfair advantage over his predecessor.

About the race 2day that break away was pretty amazing. Team discovery seemed to do better the day before all stayin together. Lance is now in 3rd place but it doesnt seem like a big deal at all

Check this site out for current Tour updates

http://www.velonews.com/tour2005/

Discovery Channel Team took a big hit on Saturday...real or ploy? Monday is a break day, Tuesday is a Mountain Stage with two CAT 1 Climbs...Velo News pre-race guide states that 6-time defending champion Armstrong will want to take control of this stage...competitors to watch in this stage are Iban Mayo, Ivan Basso, Robert Heras and Alex Vinokourov...

American's Bobby Julich, Floyd Landis, and Levi Leipheimer are still in the hunt and may begin thier attacks this week...too bad about American David Zabriski having to drop out today, he beat Lance at Lance's specialty and held the Yellow Jersey until his unfortunate crash...

I vote ploy. Armstrong and and Discovery are famous for being master "tacticians". I think they chose an easy climb to have the team fall of the pace and let the big guy hang out there, almost tempting the competition to put the screws to Lance for three reasons:

1. To see if Lance really has the legs to chase multiple breaks down.

2. To see who in the group were the men to watch.

3. To get rid of the yellow jersey. It's a lot of work for a team to keep their guy in yellow. Let some other team set the tempo and chase guys down for the next 7-10 days.

Everyone now thinks the team is weak, and there's a crack in the armor. I think you'll see team Discovery really drop the hammer in the Pyrenees, cracking a lot of guys in the peleton.

As for the comments Stephen made concerning his failed marriage, read his two boks, especially the second one: "Every Second Counts" In this one he goes into some (thought not a lot of) detail about why things fell apart.

Personally, I don't think he was ready for marriage. His life was way to hectic to make it work. He trains more than anyone in cycling, and he didn't have enough time to focus on his wife, the foundation, and training for the tour. That being said, he loves his three kids more than anything. They are the reason he's retiring.

He could be a wife beating pedophilic drunk, and it wouldn't be any less amazing that he's going for his 7th Tour win. I wouldn't respect him os much, but his personal life has no real bearing on the physical aspects of his accomplishments.

That said, I'm with Smitty- I think they're hanging back a little, and Lance is gonna kill some guys heading into the mountains. That is where he rocks.

Stage 11 Report - Vino' conquers Galibier - Armstrong holds lead

Velo News.com reported that "The Botero-Vinokourov breakaway was the highlight of an otherwise dull stage. The only other major outcome was the elimination of former yellow jersey, German Jens Voigt (CSC), who finished 46:43 back, just 41 seconds outside the time limit. That means that, following Dave Zabriskie's withdrawal on Sunday, the Tour has now lost two of its three race leaders, both of whom ride for CSC." This will effect Ivan Basso's attempt to podium the Tour.

Lance rules!

Don't really follow the tour until the Alps where it's usually won or lost. Armstrong is so dominant there it's amazing.

I know it's debatable, but he's the greatest athlete I've ever seen.

Stage 20 - Armstrong gets his stage win and clinches victory in Paris

Velonews.com is reporting that "Mickael Rasmussen saw his third place overall disintegrate after a pair of crashes and a rash of mechanicals, Jan Ullrich returned to the podium and Lance Armstrong locked up his seventh consecutive title in the Tour de France's final time trial on Saturday.

Armstrong (Discovery Channel) won the 55.5km race against the clock, with Ullrich (T-Mobile) second and teammate Alexandre Vinokourov third. But the big winners in stage 20 were Ullrich, who moved into third behind Ivan Basso (CSC), and of course Armstrong, who finally got his stage win and will bid farewell to the sport after Sunday's largely ceremonial finale on the Champs-Elysees."
