    simply, the chances of him gaining enough time between now and final TT to hold off both LA and JU
    is minimal. and somehow i doubt LA will lose over 90 secs to JU this time around. so that should put
    vino 2 min+ back in the ITT.

    tomorrow should be an epic duel, how cool would a repeat of the likes of lemond and hinault, circa
    1986, riding arm in arm to the top of Huez 5 minutes ahead of the field be ? mind you, substitute in
    Jan and Lance.

    what a great tour.

    Not analogous - Hinault and Lemond were on the same team - Hinault was probably riding at the limit,
    but could not attack.

    Tommorrow has the promise of being much better than that. 3 riders and their teams in a proverbial
    war, not 2 teamates parading (albeit at their limit).

    just the idea of it, regardless of the specifics that you so carefully pointed out, sounded
    cool...regardless, i much prefer today's result to the arm-in-arm business. its a 2 man race now
    ladies and gents, allez lance ! shawn
