you, dear sir, are sick & twisted.

there are exactly zero people in this world who would enjoy that scene.

i'll be on the lookout for my consumer review g-string.

thanks in advance.

I'm picturing a 6 footish, 200#, hairy rider on a green Surly wearing a white thong.

tarwheel should get the win, IMPOMaRider

nobody got it right, as everyone put Lance/Ullrich in top 2, but tarwheel put Millar higher than anyone else, plus he got the Lance/Ullrich gap pretty close and Hamilton's overall position too.
If it wasn't for Ullrich's crash, he may have gotten it right!

This would be exciting.

Ullrich: 53 minutes
Armstrong: 54 minutes
Hamilton: 54 minutes 5 seconds

In Paris:
Ullrich +5 seconds

But more likely:
Armstrong: 53'10"
Ullrich: 53'20"

Go Lance. Funny thing - back when the tour started, many said Ullrich wasn't a contender. I posted that reports show him in the best shape of his life and he would contend. I was actually right about something. :)

1996 and 1997 Ullrich was stronger than the current version.
Lance will lose the time trial...fcebedo

but he will win the war.

He will lose the time trial by 37 seconds. Jan Ullrich will break the time trial record and exceed the 54kph average.

Tyler will climb to 5th place and boot Mayo out.

I did a calculation of Jan's Wattage output throughout the first time trial and using that same output with much less climbing on stage 19, Greg Lemond's record is going down. Jan will be going 'like a grand prix motorcar'. (<- b.s. alert)

Lance is the champ and he will fight and he needs the time trial of his life. Jan's got the big guns though and on flat terrain, he is scary. He friggin blew by Ivan Basso on Stage 12!!

I dearly hope that both men are healthy tomorrow and have the performance of their lives.

I wouldn't say this course fits LA or Ullrich perfectly. This stage would have been perfect for Alex Zulle though.
I don't need no stinking socks!MaRider

I already won some a week ago, so I should let someone else win some. However, I need the thong, badly!

1. Armstrong 0:00 (yes, I think he'll win this one!)
2. Ulrich 0:10 (but it will be close!)
3. Hamilton 1:20 (great ride by Tyler)
4. Vinokourov 1:50 (riding for podium only)
5. Zubeldia 2:10 (to barely keep Hamilton away from 4th)

Final standings remain the same except for Hamilton climbing to the 5th by taking over a minute out of Mayo
(way to go, Tyler!).

1 Armstrong
2 Ullrich
3 Vino
4 Zubeldia
5 Hamilton
