As excited as I am to see Lance win his 5th tour (woke this morning at 6 PST with my heart already racing), it is such a bummer that Jan went down. Damn rains! I know - everyone had to race in essentially the same conditions, but I would just love to have seen what would have been...

Today's stage will be part of the legend... but had the skies been clear, the day itself would have been legendary.

Thanks to Lance, Jan, Vino, Tyler, and all the rest who made this tour outstanding.

I happen to think it was still legendary. No matter what the conditions, it was all part of the race. The winner ultimately is the one who overcame everything, including the weather. If it had been hot, perhaps Lance would have faltered and Jan would have won, but you wouldnt catch me saying it was because of the weather...... In the end, the rider who was the best all around thru all of that is the winner.
