Will Lance Armstrong Win Record 6th TdF?

Mon Jun 07, 2004 6:09 am

With less than a month before the start in Liege, LA looks ready for a record setting 6th Tour de France win. Jan Ullrich in the Tour of Germany looked to be short of where he needs to be at this point, but he has such great natural talent that I'm sure he'll be ready to give Lance another run for his money.
All you cycling fans on A.net, what do you think?

Not a chance.
Watch out for the Alessio Bianci team.

Google is your friend.

I think it will be his toughest win, but he'll win it and then retire. Jan has the talent, but not the will to win it.

Aa61hvy, actually French people love Armstrong, and many of'em root for him. As for the tour, I think he has an outside shot. There are many cyclers that are in top form right now.

Yes. If the Tour De Georgia was any indication (He won the overall race by 24 seconds), he's in pretty superb condition, and will more than likely win yet again. He even admitted that the mountain stages in North Georgia were tougher than he expected. He only won two of the seven stages, but had the overall lead for 2/3rds of the entire race.

Did you get to see any of the Tour de Georgia? I wish I could have made it but unortunately couldn't. Would have been fun to see the greatest collection of pro riders in the US since the '96 Olympics.

I couldn't catch any of it, because most of it was during the week when I was at work, and the crowd for the last stage was pretty large for a bike race in the US.
