Floyd Landis

A ride for the ages

Amazing! Epic! After having a bad day and cracking in stage 16, what a turnaround yesterday. To gain back that much time–7:38–in one stage is unthinkable.

I remember watching Greg Lemond’s incredible ride on the last day of the tour in 1989 (I think), when he made up over a minute to Laurent Fignot who was in good form. That gave me chills. But yesterday, as Bob Roll (OLN) said, was the single most incredible individual effort and ride ever seen in the Tour de France.

This sets up to be incredible drama in the Individual Time Trial on Saturday–a discipline that plays to Landis’ strengths.
