The Big Bonks

July 10. 2006
The first real time trial of the Tour has blown my podium predictions
to shreds. Many of the Americans "BONKED" including Levi Leipheimer and
George Hindcapie who may see their top 5 to 10 finish out of reach.
The best quote that summed up the day was Johan Bruyneel, Manager of the
Discovery Team, "It's lucky Jan Ullrich is not here, otherwise the Tour
would be over".

Levi, my prediction for 2nd or third, seems like he couldn't find his
form even if he had a motor attached to his bike. I'm still sticking to
my #1 man Floyd Landis who, despite have mechanical complications
during each Time Trial, is sitting pretty one minute behind the race leader.

New and improved predictions.

#1 Floyd Landis (USA), Phonak
#2 Andréas Klöden (G), T-Mobile
#3 Denis Menchov (Rus), Rabobank
#4 Cadel Evans (Aus), Davitamon

Makes you wonder if Lance could fly over, start now and come up with #8, doesn't it?
