I’ve not made mention of the Tour de France as yet, but it’s always a great event to watch – possibly the ultimate test of human endurance. Anyway, today’s stage proved how far ahead of the rest Lance Armstrong is. Although he was held off the stage win by Alejandro Valverde, Lance blew away all of his serious rivals, with Jan Ullrich losing 2’12", dropping to eighth overall, over 4 minutes behind the American.
It was also amazing to see the closest ever finish on Saturday, with Pieter Weening winning by a 5,000th of a second.after over five hours of riding (0.0000011%). Nice.
