    Indurain vs. Armstrong in the mountains - now that would of been awesome!

    I'm sad to see JaJa go. He's given us some good entertainment in the mountains during the years.

    JaJa was more a 'low' mountian rider.....not a pure climber, he was also a great sprinter in his early days. Does everone remember the french copper who stepped out in front of the bunch as they were sprinting for the line in an early 90's TDF? JaJa was one of the worst injured in the pile-up.....not bad for someone who could have won a TDF IMO.

    To change from a sprinter to someone who can get over the thoughest climbs takes something special. He's one of the best riders we'll live to see.

    He made a great run at it today. While I pull for Lance to win thte Tour, I was pulling for Jalabert today to hold on and win the stage. It was difficult to watch him crack at the end and then inspirational to see him pull himself back together for a respectable finish.

    Sorry Steve,
    I'll try to refrain from discussing the stages in the AM here in the US I forget that you guys may not see it till later. It kind of ruins the fun if you know how it ends.
