Default Lance Armstrong

I know this should be in the sport section, but bollocks to it, I never go in there!

Old lancey boy is kicking ass again in the Tour de France, anyone else keeping up with it? to me the race is amazing, I mean I ride around on my mountain bike 2-3 times a week and my knackers get sore after 5-6 miles, on the tour they do between 100 to 140 miles A DAY for 20 days.

I even have a nice comfy gel seat and there's are like a bloody razor blade, something else I didn't know until Bob Rolls (hands waving around worse than Jim "can't beat abit of bully" Bowen) the commentator for the OLN channel explainned that the riders have one of them tubes shoved down their japs eye, so they don't have to get off the bike to take a wee-wee, apparently it just vaporises in the air?

Learn something everyday, don't ya!

Seems to me that with all the problems Lance has had "down there" shoving a tube down his japs eye would be the last thing his doctor would want him to do.

Thomas Voeckler did great for 10 days. But it will be interesting to see how Lance does without Landis and Acevedo in getting his butt up the AlpeD'Huez on his own tomorow.
I fancy Ullrich and Basso to take some time off him tomorow.

I also predict Ullrich to beat armstrong in the final time trial before Paris, however, I doub't either of them will gain enough time back to warrant any challenge to the Yellow Jersey.

My tip for the upset Tyler Hamilton dropped out 3 days ago, shame. He did alright last year with a broken collar bone.

Ullrich has been off the pace abit though, makes you think if he is saving some for the last few stages, they said he doesn't look after himself enough duringthe winter months.

Hamilton dropped out, saying his back was playing up after a crash, must be hurting, cause like you said he kept on riding last year with a broken collarbone

speaking of crashing, theres been plenty of ass over tits accidents this year, fun to watch, not fun if its you though!

Lance is doing a great job again. Most thought 6 was beyond him, but so far he is proving them wrong. I think he need's the 6th win to gain a bit of respect in the cycling world. I think the record equaling 5 hasnt given him the respect of his peers, even though it put him on a par with some great names of the cycling world.

He with the help of his team have done an awesome job of controlling the race.
The stage win in the pyranees was great, and the team time trial along with the way the team controlled the peloton on the cobblestones means that, although I didn't want Lance to win, you can't deny it that the other riders in the tour just aren't up to his level.

Nahh, the elitists of the cycling world will still consider his 6th victory as a fluke, or aberration. Now if he were French I am sure that would be different...but then again the French have not won it since before LeMonds first victory. In fact, USA and Spain have so dominated the Tour (14 out of 18) since '86 there have only been 4 other countries to win it.

The fact that Americans have won the illustrious Tour 9 times in the last 18 years seems to as overlooked as the personal stories of those two men.

I thought LeMond only won 2 tours?

He won the first one I ever watched, beating Laurant Fignon on the final day in Paris.

Big Mig was another class act.

Big Mig wasn't actually well respected by the other riders during his stint at the top. He was well known for trying to push the race when a rival fell or punctured. It led to many choice words between him and the peloton

Lance won the time trial, and he overtook Basso, who started 2 minutes ahead of him.....unreal!

Tis gone like the wind from satans bottom, he did.
