A favorite time of year for me… Kind of interesting without Lance -still a lot of excitement for me. Yahoo has flash updates and live coverage so you can follow the riders as they progress through the stage.
This guy – George Hincapie, I think, can win. He’s in 4th overall right now – 17 seconds behind. It’s so early in the Tour. Almost anything is possible.
I love watching these guys race. There’s just so much heart in the Tour de France. There’s the team aspect, the country aspect and the individual aspect. I spent a couple of years “going Postal”. Now Discovery, with the Lance Armstrong legacy, is doing very well.
Paolo Salvodelli is in 7th overall, just 27 seconds back, Yaroslav Popovych is in 22nd place, José Acevedo is in 27th place, José Rubiera is in 46th place which is only 57 seconds behind the leader.
Floyd Landis could do it too… he’s an American riding for Phonak. He’s in 8th overall.
These guys were both members of Postal and rode with Lance.
It’s still early… and it’s so exciting.
