There will be a lot riding on Monday's race. I'm not sure I can sleep Sunday night... and Monday morning I'll be glued to Velonews' live coverage. Hope my boss doesn't catch me.

There are certain advantages to living on the West coast when it comes to the tour. I gotta wake up at 5, but I can watch the entire 3 1/2 hrs before rushing out to arrive at work just a bit late. "damn traffic" *grin*

Can you believe it, I woke up sick this morning. Told PHB that I might make it in sometime after lunch if Lance wins...er...if I feel better.

On one hand, people figure Lance needs another minute on Jan before the TT. Today's the last chance, so he'll have to attack early in the final climb. An attack in the final kilometer that gains him 10 seconds won't be good enough.

On the other hand, Lance seems to think he can beat Jan in the final TT. If he truly does, he'll be happy to stay with Jan.
