I hope he can win this tour. He's shown us he's the best climber. Lets hope he gets some good legs and pulls off this Time Trial. Roberto could have hade a bigger lead if you think about it. He lost some precious seconds on sierra nevada, and some on a descent in another stage.

Not to take away from Aitor, but he is where he is because the peloton let him go in a breakaway...just something to think about.

Hope Lance gives Heras some TT tips too

Good Luck Roberto!

but don't think he has enough time for the TT...he lost more time in the shorter time trial earlier in the Vuelta.

However, I really have to critisize the USPS for the team selections. After keeping Heras from winning a stage in the Tour, to which they took what is being talked about as one of the best teams in the post-war era, they bring a second rate team to Spain to help Heras. I love the fact that the USPS has great foreign riders on the team but, if I were Heras, I would switch to another team. I think he could have given LA a run for his money in the mountains of France this year...
