|I was thinking of a few points that made this Tour noteworthy in history.
-Lance's third win, what else needs to be said?
-Jalabert's mallot pois: In the past he has also won the green jersey competition. How many people can do that? Who was the last to do it? Merkx maybe?
-Zabel's record setting sixth consecutive green jersey. That record may stand for a while, unless Eric extends it next year.
-No Italian stage victories! Mama mia
-Big Mat's incredible tour showing. What a force. ;)
-Last person to win both the overall and L'Alpe d'Huez was Fauto Coppi, and now Lance Armstrong.
-Biggest comeback since WWII to win the Tour- from 35 minutes back to 7 ahead.
A pretty exciting and noteworthy TDF I think. Did I miss anything?

|Little Drama But Tour Continues Slow Recovery -- from Yahoo Sports. The American media is sooooo weeeeeeak! |
Such a great Tour! Crazy weather, crashes, a 35 min. breakaway, 4 stage wins for Armstrong, Kelme winning team contest after losing two stars, Tyler going over to CSC, Team trial USPS crash and recovery...i'm sure there's more. I was glued to OLN!
