Dauphiné result: He's on fire! (spoiler!)(15 posts)

Dauphiné result: He's on fire! (spoiler!)philippec

Iban mayo, that is!

After a very respectable TT, he puts 30 seconds on Armstrong on the col de la Ramaz and, after Mancebo, Mayo and Armstrong regroup in the downhill, Mayo outsprints Armstrong for the win!

Oh, and Moreau (4th) and Leipheimer (5th) -- not too shabby!

where did you get the details, or have you been watching on Eurosport. does not have live results for this race, any other website that gives live updates.
You can get live updates and results here.....BrianNYC
Jun 12, 2003 8:08 AM Although it is in French, and my highschool French is getting a workout, it is understandable.

The le Dauphiné web site is, to my knowledge, the only place for a live report of the race. Eurosport and French TV aren't broadcasting it! Waaaahh!



P.s. click on the days stage and then on the "en direct" tab off on the left

"At the top of the col de la Ramaz (MG1), MANCEBO (76) crosses the line ahead of ARMSTRONG (1) and MAYO (115) who are 25'' behind. MOREAU (11) and LEIPHEIMER (95) are 55'' adrift."

says Mancebo was ahead 25" at Ramaz, not Mayo who was riding with Lance. Which one is it?
according to the french live broadcast...philippec

Mancebo est passé en tête au sommet du col de la Ramaz, avec apparemment 20'' seconds d'avance sur Iban Mayo et 55'' d'avance sur Lance Armstrong. Dans la descente, Mayo et Armstrong ont rejoint Mancebo et attaquent. Moreau, Virenque, Leipheimer, Millar ... sont à 30''

Mancebo passed first, followed by Mayo 20 seconds later and Armstrong (55 seconds after Mancebo).

For what its worth...

The live ticker has Levi Leipheimer in 5th, ~36sec, but the results page has R. Virenque in 5th at 1:11 with Levi in 21st at 1:32...

Are they using those little electronic timer thingies on the chainstays and was there a bike change for Levi that is throwing the results page? Or is the results page correct and the live ticker in error? Can't imagine that the live ticker was in error for that long though...

Jun 12, 2003 9:09 AM
Cyclingnews also has the results now listed with Levi @ 1:32, finishing alone with two teammates in the group ahead. Maybe Levi's original bike was on the team car! Odd, and gotta be dissapointing for Levi to have TWO teammates finish in the group ahead of him.

Jun 12, 2003 9:58 AM
Could he have been relegated (penalized, time-wise) for holding onto the team car or pacing after the bike switch? That would explain a difference between the live and official results.
The finish was not a summit finishbenito

The Levi in 5th standings are reffering to the summit of the Col de la Ramaz, while Virenque sits at 5th in the GC.
The riders had to descend into the finish after the summit.
and now the cyclingnews report agrees with your broadcast.terry b

gets confusinger and confusinger but in the end it really doesn't matter since they finished at the same time. so yes, Mayo is hot but not so hot as to build a lead and keep it.

This shows the order over the top of the col. That's not where thr finish was. Mancebo was caught on the descent.

is this going to be televised (OLN)? nmDougSloan
Jun 12, 2003 8:50 AM
Yes! June 26th on OLN!noveread

It will be their race of the week. They've never had the Dauphine before I don't think. Tonight is Classiques des Alpes.

thanks nmDougSloan
