    following it on the ionternet in news articles is all. I don't get cable, so, it's not on! Oh, and isn't it called the Tour de Lance now? How many swedes are in the race, Vilhelm?

    Yea, it pretty much is the Tour de Lance. Hes already in the yellow jersey lol. I guess that he didnt want to wear it today though becuase the old leader crashed in the team time trial yesterday with only like 1.5 kilometers to go. They ended up making him, or they said he would be disqaulified, but really its just becuase the french dont like him.

    Yeah. The French hate Lance. Sad too, the French had some strong ties with Texas at one point. Oh well. They keep testing him for drugs and searching his garbage bins after he leaves anywhere and gee, no drugs. I think they know they won't catch him with any, but maybe they think others may juice and win if they show they don't intend to look anywhere but Lance? It's disgusting, so I hope he kicks butt and wins again. Vive le Lance!

    I watch it when I eat breakfast, otherwise no staked interest.

    Just a neat sport to watch though. I hope Lance gets it again so he can win on a high note.

    Im pretty confident that he has it unless he get sick or crashes. I dont think anybody will come close to him this year if he gets through it without and problems like that. The last time I looked, his teammate George Hincapie is in 2nd so that helps too.

    Once they start making the asent uphill it will be over. He usually takes a large lead in those stages.

    Harlock , how do you get on the ionternet? I have been listening to people talking about using it for years, but I never thought it would become viable. :p: ;) Just kidding Harlock. Btw I hope Lance beats their a$$ by even more this year, he has taken so much crap lately.

    Hey danger! I havent really had a lot of fishtank issues to talk about, im poor and i finnally realized that making plans for things all the time doesnt give me money. And i guess i could be a little better lol.



    Sorry harlock, lol. Do they make a big deal about the tour de france in texas since its lances home state? I know that nobody really cares about it besides all the bikers i know but maybe more people watch it down there.

    Hey time to bring this back up. Go CSC!!! Lance is doing fine but his team seems a little lack luster so far. They need to pick it up a bit, they were caught dozing on stage 8 really bad.

    The lost floyd landis and he was a big part of the team. He would be doing a lot better if they still had him i bet.

    This might be one of the most boring tours in a while. There's no real threat to Lance. Jan Ullrich can't compete since his team can't figure out who their leader is (Chasing down their own man, Vinikourov on a break away was disgusting), and Basso seems to be the only other rider who can't even make a run at him. The time trial is really the only place they can make time on him for the rest of the race (barring horrible mishaps) but he's a feared time trialer so that's not looking too good.

    Next year should be exciting because we'll honestly be wondering who could win, possibly down to the last stage.

    Lest anyone think I'm dissappointed, I'm not. Lance is da man. I just wish that over the last 7 years SOMEONE would have adopted a similar devotion to this race so they could give him a real challenge.
