Lance Armstrong Will Win Stage 17

Tourmalet? Pff.... He stomped up the Tourmalet today. He's older now, with a bit of rest he should be able to match AC and AS pedal stroke for pedal stroke.

Plus, it's a mountain top finish and LA has the team classification as the stated objective. For all these reasons plus the peloton wants to send him into retirement in style, I'm thinking he takes it.

I'm totally serious.

TMI !! TMI......... Plus a really bad visual.

Its not part of my body, it's a whale's penis...I have strange things in my house.
 
I'm going to have to politely disagree with you. He saved his legs over the last 5 or 6 stages to make this move and go for the win, I don't see him recovering enough to tonight and tomorrow to challenge for the overall. Andy is going to be going all out to distance AC. Even if Armstrong is up the road, they will definitely summit the climb at a much faster rate.

I don't see him factoring on Thursday.

the lack of humour or smiley face in that post suggests to me your not being sarcastic, and hence dont understand that everyone else is being sarcastic, (apart from tff)

Good point, but you are missing one important nuance: you are the only one in this thread who is sober!!

Dream on fanboy, he had his chance today and even with Horner trying to lead him out just could not pull it. He will be in the autobus on Thursday. He wasted his only chance today.
Sorry if the truth hurts.

Let's say - in the ideal world - LA gets a 20 minute head start and 'stomps' up the hill AND win the stage !! Will they make him pee in a cup for a final farewell testing ?
