Anyway, I’m pretty psyched about tomorrow’s stage to L’Alpe d’Huez. It’s going to be epic, well, hopefully. I think by tomorrow we’ll have a very good idea about who our winner will be. Or not. I mean, if someone like Leipheimer or Menchov gains time, the race is wide open. But if Landis again easy covers each attack then I think he’ll be able to do this throughout the alps and, if he gets to the final time trial close to the lead, he’ll win.
I won’t go into who I think will fill up the podium. I don’t think it’s a secret. Both cyclingnews and velonews have features on this. But if you saw the last mountain stage, you know who the players are. It’s pretty wide open at this point. I don’t care who wins. I’m hoping for some fun racing.
