just finished watching Lance destroy the field up the Alp. he was absolutely awsome, astounding, wonderful, beautiful, terrific, --- there are no words. to see it was to understand.
No wonder the French think he's on something.Brian C.

I loved those camera shots when they pulled up beside him. His legs looked liked pistons. And the incredible RPMs in high gear.
It was a lesson in cycling, that's for sure.

Absolutely. I was watching it live here in Stockholm, Sweden as Eurosport covered the whole stage. I was thinking what everyone, including the commentators, were thinking when LA showed those grimaces over the Madeleine and the Glandon: " He`s not on form..."
=( Sadness. Then, to see him ride a bicycle like he did up the l`Alpe `d Huez was hands down, among the most beautiful moments in my cycling life. It was like you described it, astounding, beautiful, awesome... I couldn`t find the words either... i just stood up in my room and cheered him on like crazy ( i think my neighbours can attest that... =)
