Where we can see some competative GC racing, and not this boring total domination crap.

Last year's Vuelta was the most exciting grand tour of the year, and excitement like that has not been seen in the TdF since Lemond won in '89.

Open your eyes folks, the TdF is not the only race on the calendar and LA is not the only cyclist in the peloton.

Enough said. Flame away!!!

"Open your eyes folks, the TdF is not the only race on the calendar and LA is not the only cyclist in the peloton." from Cima Coppi

I concur with the sentiment somewhat, but, like it or not, the TdF is the biggest race and again Lance has shown himself to be the best cyclist, when he is on top of his game.

He has won the Midi Libre and the Dauphine while "training" this year. At least that seems to be the majority opinion of people on this board. I would say that most winners of the other races on the calendar would trade places with Lance if they could and would gladly listen to the argument that they only "race" three weeks out of the year.

As for domination being boring, I am wondering after Lance has been beaten in the Tour how many of us will look back and be glad we were able to see and truly appreciate the greatness of his performances.
