Is lance playing possum... or did he have problems?snowman3

I didn't see the tour this morning but read the result summary (gasp... on espn). There was a little blurb from LA following the TTT. Any speculation if these were personal, physical, or LA just playing mind games?

In Wednesday's fourth stage -- a 42.8-mile team time trial from Joinville to Saint-Dizier -- Armstrong and his teammates blew the competition away, recording their first ever win in the speed and teamwork-orientated discipline.

Armstrong, closing in on Spaniard Miguel Indurain's record of five straight Tour victories, is peaking at the right time -- with the mountain stages lying in wait.

"I had some problems before the Tour that I didn't elaborate on," Armstrong said after the win. "I didn't talk about them because it's really not important. But I'm getting better. I feel better every day."

I think he is going to win, but I wouldn't be suprised if he is not fully "there" yet. I guess we will all know for sure this weekend when they hit the first mountains.

He might be referring to his marital problems.
