Lance Armstrong Widens Overall TdF Lead
Lance put in another excellent ride, in what many consider to be the toughest stage of this years race. Led up the final climb once again by his Postal Teammate, Roberto Heras, Lance launched off the front with a few km to go, eventually opening up a 1+ minute gap on Heras and the only rider able to keep up, Joseba Beloki.

After initially pulling away, Lance stayed relatively close, hoping that Heras could crack Beloki and then join him for a 2 man ride to the top. As it turned out, Heras ended up as a carrot for Beloki, and it was too dangerous to let Heras try to pull back up with Lance.

I can't wait to get home and watch the replay of this stage with daddy!
