    If he leads going into the mountains, its all over for everyone else. He'll gain the most ground there.

    Look at the top 3 right now.

    Its early but USA is kicking Ass. In fact they say Lance's biggest opponent this year is another American by the name of Tyler Hamilton. If someone is going to beat Lance, i'd rather it be another American. Fuck the French. We own their little bike race.

    Armstrong Poised to Deal Knockout Blow

    July 17, 2004 08:52 AM EDT


    LANNEMEZAN, France - Already in commanding position, Lance Armstrong led the Tour de France into possibly its hardest stage Saturday - a seven-climb monster in which he could all but wrap up his sixth straight crown in cycling's showcase event.

    Several of Armstrong's leading threats pulled out of the race, including fellow American Tyler Hamilton. He withdrew because of a back injury that had been troubling him since a crash more than a week ago.

    Armstrong was the winner the last time the Tour went through the punishing Plateau de Beille in the Pyrenees in 2002. Having struck a blow to rivals Friday, Armstrong had a chance for a knockout in the 127.7-mile ride from Lannemezan.

    The five-time champion, in the first Pyrenees stage on Friday, stunned his rivals by leaving them trailing on the day's last climb.
