Did you notice his acceleration to catch Beloki & LA yesterday? I think this guy may be getting stronger. Anyone else think he may attack Beloki & LA in one of the upcoming mountain stages?

Maybe but..Wayne

I think it's more like just attacking Beloki and company. They're all fighting for the minor podium spots now (at least that's what Beloki said the other day). If Armstrong is there then I guess he gets attacked as well, but I think they've pretty much conceded defeat to him.

If he's feeling strong he could try to attack Beloki. He's only 2:18 down now, but with the kind of riding they have left it mightbe tough. I guess he could try to win one to get the time bonus, and he has the TT left as well. He beat Beloki by 1:13 in the last ITT. LA will never let him get very far away though. I have no real issue with Beloki, but it woul dbe cool to see Rumsas beat him, just because of how cocky Sainz and the other ONCE guys have been. Although that trait (complete lack of humility) seems fairly common in the Euro's. Apparently self deprication is lost on them.
