    Lance the dancing american on his bike and Jan the big german machine just grinding out his big gears.
    I think it kind of happened, mostly in the TT's.
    I'll never forget last year in the final TT when LA passed Janny Boy, he might as well of spanked him on his butt as he passed by, I think it was that much of blow to Janny Boy's pysche.

    Probably, but despite being fierce competitors, the two are good friends...

    As for T-Mobile, regardless of how you feel about the guy, I think it was classless move and a PR thing. I mean, if he's eventually found guilty, he'll most likely be banned from cycling for two years, so it will be a moot point...

    It will probably take a lot longer than two years for things to play out and any verdict comes out it. European justice is sllllllloooooooowwwwwww...
    And in that time Ullrich will probably have a hard time finding a team.
    If T-Mobile, is distancing themselves from him, who will hire him?

    Speaking of bans...

    Brian, did you see the interview with Tyler Hamilton last week? Seems he's in a very touchy situation.

    His two year ban is almost up, but a rule change while he was appealing his case (after the ban started, but before the final decision) now says after the two year total ban (no competeing whatsoever), a cyclist must then serve an additional two year pro ban, meaning Tyler could race, but NOT for a pro team.

    There is a question of whether this new rule should apply to Tyler, as his suspension started before it came about, but there are some in cycling's governing body that assume it will apply to him.

    The final ruling in Hamilton's case will have a huge effect on his career. He wants to race in the World Championships this year (as well as resume his normal pro career), but if the additional two year ban is enforced, that's pretty much it for his career.

    And what a sad way that would be for him to go out...

    Re: Speaking of bans...

    I didn't see the interview you are talking about Steve, and I don't know a lot about the case, but if he "broke the rules" then he "broke the rules" and should be punished accordingly.

    He seems to have quite a case on his website, http://www.tylerhamilton.com/tylerscase232.html
    I wish him all the best, his absence this year meant there were only eight US riders, which isn't enough to field a complete team.

    An American Continues To Wear Yellow In Paris!

    What an incredible Tour this has been!
    Bike racing at it's best!
    Eight or Nine Lead changes!
    Epic mountain stages filled with agony and ecstacy!
    Incredible time trials!
    Thanks Floyd!
    Thanks to all the other American racers!
    We can thank all the other racers too, but I am VERY partial to whom I root for.

    "And I'm Proud To Be An American, Where I See Americans Wearing Yellow In Paris....."
    Sung to The Tune Of "Proud To Be An America," Thank Lee Greenwood!...
