Is anyone following Lance Armstrongs journey for a seventh Tour DeLance title? He truly is an amazing story. I beleive his heart, and determination is second to none. he is one of the true warriors in sports today. Go Lance and Go U.S.A.

I didn't follow this one. I did do a presentation on him for school a few months ago. The man surely has determination. It's very inspiring what he has gone through and where he is now.

Cleve, been following even back when Greg LeMond was winning. Today was the first part of the mountains and Lance started to separate the Man from the field. It is incredible to watch. Some can win stages, but no one puts together an entire race like him.

Ive been watching for years myself. Back when you would only see highlight on Wide World of Sports. He is a beast. And as of today, he has the yellow jersey back.

Watch out guys...gotta let the French man win on Bastille Day. Then the sprinters will gain a couple minutes on the flat stage tomorrow. Then Lance gets pumping by taking out the mountains and leaving all in the wake. It will hurt losing Beltran, but Lance will carry the team himself if he needs to. I honestly haven't seen a better mix of style and climbing ability.

I hear you Chef. Lance is the total package. I see his :38 lead starting to increase this weekend, by Tues there will be little doubt. Just coasting and pacing right now.

Lance is really starting to seperate himself now. It was nice seeing Hipcanie win a stage.

Looking forward to Sat. Lance said that he will go all out in the last time trial, whether he needs it or not. True competitor!

It will be like before Lance will go all out, but will have enough cushion to take it gentle at the tough corners, where Ullrich had to push and slipped on the wet corner and cost him...
