Podium For Lance?

So the stage just started, will we see Lance in yellow (haha)? Is is his third place secure? Can he leapfrog to 2nd?

I think Alberto Contador's going to be a super huge homo and attack everyone, Frank Schleck has the best shot of getting to the 3rd position - I don't think Kloden would be a herb and pass Lance even if the opportunity arose.

If he's able to, Lance will obviously win the stage. If Contador's not a total dick like I believe him to be, Contador would help him out to repay him for the other days.

I think it's going to be Contador, Andy Schleck, and then Lance. And Wiggins in fourth.

More Lance news: he posted today on his Twitter that he was doing Leadville 100. At first, I thought he meant the high-altitude 100 mile trail run. But after a bit of googling I found that there is a Leadville 100 MTB that he did last year. There are rumours on the Interwebs that Floyd Landis will do it, too.

I'm guessing that the TV coverage of the Leadville 100 will not be as comprehensive as the TdF. Dang.

there are actually some pretty sweet stories from last year when he did Leadville. He came in 2nd to a dude who basically lives and breathes for that mtn bike race.

Yeah Floyd usually shows up to that stuff. I guess he should be clean now, presuming he did, in fact, cheat, and he's also got a fake hip. Floyd is actually a mtn biker by nature and has mad technical skills and I bet he would beat Lance.
