You are pretty hostile, crit racer.

According to Floyd himself, HE TOLD ME he was going to win the TT. He told me that he was going to win the Vuelta last year also. I believed him both times. Because he did not do I think any less of him? Heck no, I think more of him each time because he is there throwing down like a madman, giving it hell. Although his lead looks tenuous at best right now but a little recovery and two more TT's to go...you never know. He has showed huge heart since getting the gold jersey after the TT. Guts and grit have kept him in it.

Heras is a notch below where he had been in the past. If he is going to win this Tour, he will have to show he can level everyone on the mountain top finishes and gain MINUTES because there are good TT riders who can pull back time if they stay close, ie Landis, Menchov, Mancebo...

As far as Heras upsetting Armstrong at the TdF, Chris was not alone in his estimation he was just off the mark. Ni big deal.
