Apparently the hate for Lance is not just in the community but also extends to the board mods. Even asking "Why does everyone hate Lance?" gets your thread locked. Hahahaha. Kind of funny.

Stay on topic please.

Biffins: One Armstrong thread is enough.

Best stage so far on so many fronts:
JUst demonstrates how lucky armstrong was to put 7 together - his riding wasn't lucky but his lack of misfortune sure was. He looked like Indurain when he was busted on his last tour (by Riis i believe). So much for his call 2 years ago that the riders were a bunch of amateurs and that he would have won. Wasted a lot of money on a good team they might as well go home.
Contador is human.
Schleck has improved lots from last year (his legs and arms are even skinnier).
Wiggins race is over - he can thank his team who obviously think he is better than last year - they did more damage to him than to the other contenders.
Evans will probably have to do something special to win.
Alex Vinokourov is still crazy - off the back one moment and down the road the next.
And what about Kloden? Maybe he has gone out in sympathy for lance - he must have been able to see it yesterday when he cheerily waved goodbye to the peloton as he slipped out the back.

If andy can keep looking fresh he will win. Long way to go.

I think moderators on this forum miss the point. Half the fun of reading these threads is the sometimes clever sledges bewtween one-eyed fan boys.

I say let em go!

I wanted someone to beat him straight up one more time.

That said, if LA truly works for Levi (I'll believe it when I see it), he'll probably gain back some lost respect.
There were plenty of times when it didn't seem like la was riding for ac last year despite ac being clearly the stronger rider. LA just couldn't believe he wasn't the main man.

Hopefully, being so far down he will ride for LL, although he did say in interview that maybe he would have to concentrate on stage wins. Stil doesn't sound like the team player. Some people can't be told.
