I have to admit, I’m a little disappointed. I never really thought Lance would win the Tour, but I really hoped he would find someway to shock everyone and win one more time. The Tour is certainly not over, but after today’s stage and the final climb up to Verbier, it’s hard to imagine anyone but Alberto Contador winning this year. It’s still quite impressive to see what Lance is doing four years after his last win, but he’s certainly not the dominant figure he once was. At this point I would be impressed if he can stay in the top 5. Hopefully he’ll prove me wrong, and I’ll still be standing on the side of the road from here to Paris cheering Lance along.

  1. The rides and the scenery look great, although I am not sure that
    I could make it up or down the hills. The shivering ride sounds like
    you got your core temperature down below 95. Scary. I am glad that
    you are okay. Take care and we'll see you on the next blogpage.
