I beileve Lance will win his third Tour. The man is simply on top of his game. This years Tour is also well suited for him and I believe that Kevin's move has added fuel to the fire. I believe Jan is simply not up to form and will be no great threat to Lance. USPS will by far have the strongest team and carry Lance home to victory.

I also believe Lance will attack in the mountains harder then the previous two years. It will be exciting to watch the best in the world try and stay with him and then see him look back and motor away. And the mountain time trial - Lance will crush that stage and add mass time to his overall lead.

Face the facts - Lance is the man! He will prove it once again. 2 days and counting!!
perhaps, though there are a couple other good teamsLardog

I'm kinda hunchin' that there are only a small number of teams that will be in the running should everyone stay healthy. I feel that USPS, Mapei, Telekom and Rabobank are steps above the rest of the teams. Fassa Bortolo is close, then there's a gap. Watch out for the combo of Dekker, Boogerd, de Jongh. Zabel, Ullrich, Livingston and crew are certain to be around. Watch out for Mapei as well. I really like them, Bartoli, Garzelli, Nardello, Zanini, Steels and Bettini. Of course, THE team, Hincapie, Lance, Heras, Hamilton..... It's going to be good.

Let's see... this is a 3500 km race, run over three weeks. I'm not sure anyone can say ANYTHING is a sure thing.

Me? I hope Lance doesn't win it this time. It's not that I don't like him or Postal, and it's not that I don't think he's a great athlete [he plainly is]. I'm just so nauseated by all the Lance hype pumping out of American popular culture.

You'd think that no one else was IN this race.

Sorry, that makes my unsympathetic. I'm behinf Casagrande on this one. I'd like to see him win this race once.
get on your single speed and ride!mondo mike
