    They seem to be beefing up the climber contingent more than ever even though this is not an
    especially challenging course. Although most of the USPS climbers are fairly well balanced. Maybe
    Lance should have been working on his Spanish rather than his French. At least half of the team will
    be Spanish speaking.

    If there is one place where his competition can attack him it's on the early climbs. In order to
    make a new record, Lance has to have a lot more support. Beltran, Heras, Rubiera and Landis are
    going to be there when the going gets rough.
