Lance Armstrong gained important time on his main rivals today and now leads the Tour de France by 03:48. His closest rivals are Ivan Basso, Andreas Klöden and Jan Ullrich. Tomorrow is the hardest mountain stage of the Alps and will feature three category 1 climbs and the famous Col de la Madeleine. Will Armstrong take the win again, or will Basso, Rasmussen or Virenque succeed? Stay tuned to Roadcycling.com to find out!
At this point, I don't think Ullrich will finish on the podium. There would have to be some tragic occurrence to shake up the GC and I hope we won't have to talk about that.
