    He won't win pero papahirapan niyan yung mga bata niyan! He did pretty well at Giro considering his training was cut due to a broken shoulder.
    GO Lance give them HELL!!!!

    Which (Cable)TV channel is covering Le Tour '09?

    Jan Ulrich should also make a comeback :) Too bad Pantani is already up there... I love their battle of the Alps in the early 2000's

    Ahh... I used to go home in the middle of work or stay up late at night till morning to catch the 30 min ESPN (IIRC) coverage of the 2004 tour. Got most of them on tape too... Was disappointed when I couldn't watch it on Dream anymore.

    Who do we watch as contenders for this year's tour?

    Though still on Stage 2, I am NOT familiar with any of the Top-10 on the stage honors. Looks like the old sprinters had retired...

    Lance is already in 3rd place overall.

    First time ko makapanood ng Tour de France kasi lagi palabas dito. I'm amazed at how the team works to push one rider to win. Cavendish winning 2 stages in a row thanks to his teammates.

    Kelangan ko na talaga bumili ng road bike. :)

    YUP!!!! ang husay ng lead out!! pero siyempre bale wala yung lead out kung mahina yung sprinter mo :D - Cavendish did velo too during the olympics.
    When he came off the wheel of his lead out he was like a man on fire - bigla nalang umagwat ng two bike's length

    Well, you should see Super Mario Cipolini during his time. He explodes on the last 50meters to the finish line and he is the most flamboyant cyclist I've seen.:cool:

    too early to tell - yes meron din laglagan ng teammate pero the tour hasn't began yet - wait for the mountain stages. Puwede din ginawa yan para media mileage and to take off the pressure and focus on Contador.

    Pero papahirapan talaga ni Lance mga riders ngayon - but he has an undue advantage - masmagaan siya - isa lang kasi bayag niya - hahahaha

    I'm counting on Lance's personality
    Pereho ni Jordan , di papayag patalo
    My opinion lang , he came back kasi he misses winning

    Yes tama ka diyan - as he said before a talk show. He was asked about dedication he said: what were you doing on Chirstmas day? I had a ?? hour ride on that day.

    Even his mom said - when he was (I can't remember the age) everyone was out partying and he would still be out training.

    Ibang breed yan si Lance. He is very very competitive. Don't get me wrong Lance boy din ako. He would dish out a lot of hurt before the end of the tour. I'm just excited to see who is who on the climbing stages!!
