Looks like Vino and Tyler aren't going to be one-upped in the mountains by Lance. What if LA has to win it in the TT? I've seen Tyler TT and we all know he's pretty damn good. What about Vino's 40k TT? Anyone remember him ever doing one?
I think he's decent...Dwayne Barry

but not spectacular. But he appears to be on super form and riding for yellow, so maybe he'll pull something out of the hat. His build makes him look like a classics/TT much more than a climber, but I think he's always excelled at the latter much more so than the former.

Not that I'd wish it on anybody, but what he really needs is a bout of cancer and chemo to get rid of that useless upper body mass!

Indurain never even won a single mountain stage, if I remember correctly. You *can* win in the time trials.

Actually he did Doug, just never when he was contending for the overall classification...

He's better than most...tazdag

but probably not challenged by Armstrong. Vino won Tour de Suisse in June which had an ITT shorter than either of the two in this years TdF. He finished the ITT 1.12.62 behind the winner (B. McGee) and 0.50.26 behind Ullrich.
