No matter what happens Saturday, the final stage into the Champs-Elysées will be contested.

The Yellow will not only go to the best rider, but the best team as well!

Best tour in 50 years!
Best in 14 years (since '89?) IMHO. nmSpunout

I think the Green Jersey guys will be up front, though nmDougSloan

Regardless of the outcome of the time trial, I believe the Green jersey contenders will relegate the GC boys to somewhere in the peleton. They wouldn't have a chance against the pure sprinters.
Pure sprinters will be out front Sunday, but...spyderman

it's almost like we'll have a iTT Saturday, with a long TTT to follow on Sunday (Strongest team will win), and a final sprint that will be as vicious as ever.

What an epic Tour!
... with Virenque happily spinning away in the back? nmDougSloan

ITT

1.)Ulrich
2.)Armstrong 1:03
3.)Hamilton
4.)Miller
5.)Vino

Final

1.) Armstrong (Assuming he holds Ulrich off of points on Sunday
2.) Ulrich .02
3.) Vino
4.) Hamilton
5.) Zubelda

Armstrong is behind by more than 1:05 at the last time check & guts it out to make up precious seconds at the finish.

I'm yelling at the TV like I was in '89
