Ullrich isn't out the door yet ...El Guapo

but he's certainly been handed his hat. Armstrong looked GOOD! If the Postal Train can resume its stellar support of Lance, then the iTT becomes the only real possibility of a shakeup. Vino is shelled. 3rd place is the best he can hope for. The battle for 1st will still be incredible. Ullrich won't just lay down. I predict the overall speed of the final iTT will eclipse the long standing record held by LeMond. Remember, Armstrong should have the advantage of the immediate time checks of Ullrich in that iTT.

I'm a LA fan, but have become enamored with this guy. Watching TRUE competition is incredibly rare these days in any sport. These guys are battling it out with their hearts in the true spirit of competition. Jan is not going to give it away, but this is where LA shines ... he has an incredible capacity that can go the distance in the tour, others will continue to fade, but Jan is not out yet! If the weather continues to cool down a bit, then LA will become stronger than he was earlier in the tour.
