Sorry, I meant "Kloden" not Holden.

If Kloden was to be considered as a possible podium finisher...

...What is he like at the TT; because quite recently, most of the winners make up the time here.

a few years back, Kloden was hailed as the next Ullrich! Then he promotply disappeared again until this year. Don't know how his TTing has held up over the years. Guess we'll find out real soon.. ;)

After the last stage I dan't think Jan will make up that much time, GO LANCE!! Baring any unfortunate accidents Lance to win by at least 3.48.

cheers

Armstrong has had his bad days too....I wouldn't count Ullrich or Hamilton out just yet, and I wouldn't anoint Basso and Kloden after 1 stage. There's a lot of racing to go yet. But Armstrong does have a hell of a team.

What I'm reading doesn't sound good for Jan.

Mayo and Hamilton have suffered in the hills.
Could Basso challenge LA in the GC?

Ullrich's done.
Mayo/Hamilton are done.
Yes Basso can!
Good for Voeckler, what a heart.
USPS: what a team.

Well said, though I think Lance still will win. Bravo for Voeckler; talk about about your EverReady Bunnie!!!!

For Ulrich and Tyler? Next year! To Voeckler Chapeau. The kid's got a big heart. His perfroamcne yesterday is an object lesson never to give up. I'm full of admiration for him.

From Jan's website (translated freely):

Jan gave his all on Saturday, but it' wasn't good enough. He felt a lot better than Friday. Lance is truly supreme. Jan thinks he still suffers some of the after effects from the cold he had during the first week, but certainly does not want to use that as an excuse. he hopes to get better now with each passing day and looks forward to Monday's rest day.
Jan looks forward to the Alps with their less steep slopes, longer climbs and better asphalt, factors that suit him better then the steep Pyrenees.
He also congrats Klöden and thinks a top-3 in Paris is possible for Klöden.

Hallo Fans,

Das war eine "Hammer-Etappe"! So habe ich mich selten geschunden. Nach sieben Bergen und über 200 km bei für mich eigentlich idealen Bedingungen muss ich aber eingestehen: Lance scheint in diesem Jahr unschlagbar!

Dabei bin ich heute ans absolute Limit gegangen, aber das war eben einfach zu wenig, um Lance in Bedrängnis zu bringen. Ich glaube, mir steckt die Erkältung vom Tour-Beginn noch etwas in der Muskulatur. Wobei das keine Entschuldigung ist.

In die Ursachenforschung können wir sowieso erst nach der Tour einsteigen. Nach dem gestrigen "Regenritt" bin ich heute froh, dass mir ein großer Leistungssprung gelungen ist. Aber zaubern ich eben auch nicht.

Wenn ich mich jetzt jeden Tag so steigern kann, ist noch einiges zu erwarten. Zumal mir auch das Restprogramm Mut macht. Denn die Alpen mit ihren langen, nicht so giftigen Rampen und dem besseren Straßenbelag kommen meiner Fahrweise einfach mehr entgegen.

Ein Wort zu meinem Kumpel Klödi: Was der heute wieder geleistet hat, war Topp. Wenn er das Niveau hält, hat er es auch drauf, in Paris aufs Podium zu fahren!

Das habe ich für mich ebenfalls noch nicht abgeschrieben, auch wenn es bis dahin noch ein hartes Stück Arbeit ist. Eines kann ich Euch aber versichern: Ich kämpfe jeden Tag bis zum Umfallen!

Denn so, wie ein Fußballspiel 90 Minuten hat, heißt es bei uns: Die Tour ist erst in Paris zu Ende.

Bis dahin!

Euer

Jan

Is Voigt really working for Basso to bring Jan back?

How can we beat LA when the contenders work against eachother?

Riis prefers to defend Basso's 2nd place behind Armstring rather than to let Lance do the work and risk being passed by Ullrich.....
