Here we are on the eve of the last TdF to include Lance Armstrong. Will he go out on top with win number 7? Will Jan Ullrich finally beat LA in his last chance to do so. Will one of the talented Spanish riders Mayo, Heras, Landaluze, rise to the occasion? Perhaps Basso will show his true form. What of the other Americans in the field? Can Leipheimer or Landis rise to the occasion with limited team support in the mountains? Julich is showing signs of the form that put him on the podium a few years back. Will someone emerge from the shadows and steal the show? I know I've left out many other contenders so feel free to add to the list. I think that in reality the most interesting part of race will be the battle between the Discovery Channel and T-Mobile superteams. Theses two teams are stacked like no other team in recent history and are reminiscent of La Vie Claire in 1985 and 1986. The battle between them will be pivotal in determining the overall winner. It should be one hell of a race. What do you A.net cycling fans think?
Also, is anybody here playing the fantasy le tour 2005 game at cyclingnews.com?
