reminiscent of Indurain

  1. Dumbasses -


    Reminiscent in the manner of the race, although not in style.


    The ride up Hautacam, in '94? flat stages before then, flat all the way
    up till the climb. Both Rominger and Chiapucci were in trouble early,
    Indurain goes. Only Luc Leblanc could stay w/ Indurain and Leblanc wins
    the stage. Indurain wins the TdF.


    Looking at the GC, it's hard to envision how anyone can beat LANCE
    unless he has a run of very bad luck. He's riding well, he has the best
    team and his principal rivals rode like crap today.


    LANCE tifosi: woohooo!
    LANCE anti-tifosi: sux to be you
    LANCE neutrals: (yawn) won't see the drama of last year

    Do not write off Basso, the guy is young, shown promise in the past, and
    can climb. He's definitely LA's main competitor now. If he has a
    good day, he could put a minute or two on any of the GC contenders,
    including LA.

    That's a bit presumptive about him and a bit dismissive of the other
    contenders after only one hard mountain stage. This was just a warmup
    for tomorrow and other stages.

    After you pull that finger out of your nose remember that is just what
    everyone was saying about Jan just a day ago.
