I think they are just waiting for the big climbs, its to bad about the time trial, they would be looking good right now. I also think they are putting to much worry on Jan, all of a sudden Bobby J is looking real good. I think these guys realy know what there doing and they dont seem to be in the panic mode as of yet, dont forget its only the 6th stage plenty of time left, they just have to stay close, you can win the whole thing without winning a stage.
Steve A is right...wait for the mountainsOnly300

It is there that Tyler Hamilton, Roberto Heras, Jose Rubiera and Victor Pena will help keep Lance at the front of the peloton. Then look for Lance and some of the posties to break away and get some serious time gaps between the other leaders.

I remember reading somewhere that Lance was planning to wait for l'Alpe d'Huez to make a "statement".

Lance looks real strong and almost single-handedly pulled USPS up the final climb in the TTT.
