The first leg of the 2004 Tour de Framce has just been completed, and my predictions weren't that far off.
Lance ~ 6th
Tyler ~ 8th
Mayo ~ 21st
The gauntlet was thrown down, as Lance Armstrong showed that he was indeed on form. finishing second, well ahead of his rivals.
That's 6 Americans in the top 18. 1/3 of the top 18. That's incredible. I think that Bobby Julich could wind up being the top dog for CSC at the end of the tour. I didn't write in in my last entry, but I should have, Ivan Basso has been nothing short of terrible lately. I was going to predict him to have a disappointing performance, but I wanted to keep it positive.
