Julian Dean Diary

2006 Tour de France - Stage 9: Moving on.

our way.

I?m frustrated as I?m not feeling as good as I can and the team bosses are starting to scratch their heads. Things are getting difficult for us all. We just have to try and hang in there and hope we have a chance to do something in the last week.


Tomorrow the mountain stages begin. We?ll start to see who the real contenders are in the next couple of days. This will be when the real race begins to emerge. It?s pretty exciting as it?s wide open and I think that there?s going to be some good racing with some big attacks.


My prediction is that on the podium in
Paris
, we?ll see a Russian (that can include someone from any of the old Soviet states), any Aussie (for the first time ever), and an American ? and not in any particular order.


As for me, I just hope that I can get through the mountains.
