    looks like Floyd just won his second week-long stage race this year.

    Guys like you are the reason Armstrong got away with being a 3-week specialist.

    Dan

    P.S. It's not over yet. There's still some Spanish guy 9 seconds down, for example.

    Yea, but can that Spanish guy TT?

    He doesn't need to be able to TT.

    Well, maybe not this week. :->

    Actually, you make a good point. I had ASSUMED that there was a TT
    later this week, and there's not. But, from reading the
    cyclingnews.com story, it appears that even the Spaniard doesn't fancy
    his chances. It was only his first ever pro win, and while he may have
    won it anyway, Landis gifted it to him in a sense by not contesting the
    sprint.

    It's pretty clear from the writeup that Landis was clearly the dominate
    rider today. I hope he can defend his lead.

    It just occurred to me, but I'm guessing Phonak might not be missing
    TH's presence all that much after all. I bet they're glad Floyd
    decided to stick w/ them through the problems they had getting into the
    ProTour.

    You can bet your butt that he didn't "stick" with them without plenty
    of financial incentives. And it now seems as though they were more than
    warranted.

    I'll take your side in any flamewar you get into in this newsgroup if
    you promise to never use that word again. Or "societal."

    You're right. I typically find it annoying when folks make verbs from
    nouns. I apologize.

    Does this make Landis one of the favourites for The Tour?

    Depends on what his form looks like in four months, doesn't it?
    July's a long time away... :)

    I'm rooting for Ullrich, but I'm sentimental like that.

    Good thing you didn't say, "I find it annoying when a noun gets verbed."

    The answer is: among those at Paris-Nice, it does, which doesn't say much.

    No, but his new TT position that he brought out at the Toc might be more significant. I still wouldn't bet on him, but i think higher of him then I did last year.
