wha ... WHAA???

Fukkin Floyd is off the front by FIVE minutes with 45 miles to go.

ok ... did someone say something about panache?


I find myself giddy with happiness.

Will he be caught? of course. It doesn't matter one frickin' bit.



Floyd ~ in two days ... he's etched himself into Tour history. so, so good.

Voigt is chasing ... noooooo!!!!

anyone but the Jensy...

this is just insanity. the best Tour escapade in ... decades.

Down to 7:22, with T-Mobile leading it with GOnchar. Remember, they have 6 minutes on him, while it's Pereiro who has the fill 8:08. It's an interesting combo.. .. Who's going to bring Pereiro up?


up the Joux Plane....what an incredible day!

Decades Olaf?

You don't think (single) day is comparable to tyler's?

And he's solo!

Chris said...

Utterly and absolutely better than Tyler because the YELLOW JERSEY is at stake! Hamilton was out of contention, and although admirable, the only chasers were the ones who wanted to sprint for the finish.

This is all about everything! All cards are on the table, all the chips are in the pot.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

every man for himself...mayhem

Tmobile, not impressive

Moreau, selfish

CSC, continues to impress

velobella said...

oops, that was me

velobella said...

CSC has got to be the most charmed team

Tmobile sits in during the chase, have five guys on the last climb...and where are they?

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

I am so late

Flandria said...

gooo floyd!!!!!

velobella said...

When I said that Landis would have to put minutes AND 4-5 GC guys would have to crack in one day

I didn't really think that could happen

this is the best tour eve

Chris said...

5:52..that's the GC gap between Sastre and Landis....Landis beat Sastre in the TT by 1:10

Flandria said...

YEEESSS! Superman Floyd!!!!

Chris said...

Greatest.Stage.Ever.

Flandria said...

excellent stage - ready to barf now...

X Bunny said...

geez
so what was the outcome for those of us who have no way to know....

velobella said...

Its not over yet....we're watching the time for Sastre to come in

velobella said...

All of a sudden, those 8 seconds in the late tt, and those 8 seconds that Garzelli punked, mean somethine

Chris said...

Landis 3rd by one minute after Pereiro and Sastre...and between those guys it's 10 seconds...and Floyd is the best TT out there.

Flandria said...

Chris said...

Scratch that...math was wrong....Floyd in 3rd by 30 seconds.

shawndoggy said...

Best tour stage ever. Wow. Floyd tells Frankie he wants yellow and he'll have to win another stage. Go Floyd!

Talk about a comeback!

Johnny Sprocket said...

Love the part about Landis breaking a wheel. Now that is pro stuff. Attack and break equipment. Attack and send not one, but two fellow pro's to the medical car with nose bleeds. Legendary ride for sure. Landis has cajones, for sure. I hope he smokes the time trial on Saturday.

wow

X Bunny said...

i was watching it at home on cycling news but i can't access it at work

Anonymous said...

INCREDIBLE!!! I felt the same way I did watching Lemond in 1989. Someone used the word Giddy.

Do ya think he might have shown just a LITTLE Panache today?

Flandria said...

blockers suck...cyclingnews should be exception...

X Bunny said...
