2005 Tour de France - Stage 20
So, what are we waiting for? will Lance win his 7th in a row? Will anyone beat him in the TT? <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /?>
I think Lance wants to win a stage so he will go for it. Probably the only "suspense" is whether or not Rasmussen can hold off Ullrich.
Oh my god! It?s not over until it s over. Rasmussen is ruined. I can't believe it. Flats, bike changes, and crashes. He had enough bad luck for the entire peloton! He must be devastated. How disheartening after all his hard work. I wish we could have seen a true race between him and Ullrich. I do feel sorry for him.
Talk about a range of emotions, look at Lance. He still spanks Jan with his time. He got his stage win and is a happy camper. Tomorrow will be easy street. Discovery Channel team can relax also. Julich, Hincapie, and Landis have great performances.
Now, take a look at the overall. Three Americans in the top ten with Hincapie and Julich in the top 17. Goes to show you what I said the first day about Americans being better racers (can't wait until the hate mail comes in)! Obviously, I'm biased and if the title of my article doesn't tell you something, then you are taking this much too seriously. Everyone who started the Tour deserve a huge amount of admiration and praise for their hard work and effort. I'm just an old guy who gets fat in winter! I hope everyone stays safe and healthy through tomorrow.
