Another mountain, another minute cushion for Lance. Congrats to Hincapie.

Basso looked very tired at the end of yesterday, I'm really impressed with the way he hung with Lance today.

It's a two man Tour this last week, with Armstrong up by 2:46.

Looks like Armstrong was +1:24 on Ullrich and +1:28 on Rasmussen today.

Wow! What a victory for George and the team! What a thrill to see George take his first stage win in the Pyrenees! I love the mountain stages!

Wonderful. Just wonderful. So happy for "big" George. Well deserved. Played it perfectly. Who's left for Lance? Unless he falls or gets shoved it looks to me like the fat lady is warming up. What a way to go out!! Great tour. Who will the next "Lance" be?

What an excellent win for George. I was screaming for him in my living room.
