    long way out for Haussler to be making a go of it alone..

  • phacochop

    thank you so much, means a lot as i read your updates.

    hmmmm…Lance a bit slow????? well for a 38 yr old slowcoach he’s only 8 secs of fYellow, personally I think he has done phenomally well considering the collarbone break thrown in to the mix], although 99% of my admiration this TDF goes to “Twiggo” I hope he hangs in for a top 10 finish at least , and who knows if he hangs in there in the alps before the TT [which he could win] then who knows up Mt Ventoux? If not too hot then he may even be pushing for a podium finish, could be one of the most heroic British performances since the sad passing of Tommo, what a fitting tribute to the legend that would be.

    Wiggins for a podium finish? outside bet for me……..

    Here’s hoping for some action today…so far I’m frustrated with the lack of attacking. Most GC contenders seem content with their placings. Or are unwilling/unable to attack. I hate to be pessimistic but might this continue through the Alps?

    I want my mommy!!

    I LOVE WATCHING THE TOUR, EACH STAGE IS DIFFERENT, AND THE SPRINT IN TO THE FINISH IS GREAT. BUT MY FAVOURITE PART IS THE MOUNTAINS, AND I HOPE LANCE ARMSTRONG COMES TO THE FORE AS HE IS A GREAT CLIMBER, LANCE IS MY FAVOURITE CYCLING STAR. I FOLLOW HIM YEAR AFTER YEAR. I ALSO THINK THAT USE OF RADIOS SHOULD BE BANNED ALTOGETHER, AND LET THE CYCLIST MAKE IT UNDER THERE OWN STEAM, I THINK IT WOULD MAKE FOR A BETTER RACE. ANYWAY I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO TODAYS STAGE, AND I HOPE THERE IS PLENTY OF ATION. VIVA LE TOUR….
