The question isn't what we think, it's what Levi thinks. 5 minuts is a lot of time to make up. Let's see what he says in the post race interview. I'd call it a poor performance., but let's see what it does to his psyche.

He was dog slow, if he can spin that in an interview it still does not change the truth. Liars can figure, but figures don't lie.
dog slow for a pro who was a favorite in a TdF TT, but he could still kick all of our a$ses

What does that have to do with anything. I find it funny when people defend the poor performance of a professional athelete by comparisons to us mere mortals. Completely irrelevant.

he was dog slow. Done deal. Game over.

I wonder if he was sick. Real easy to come down with something at a GT. Happens to a few contenders every year.

Julich's poor riding suprised my, that was a Cat 5 move in that corner. Same thing happened last time the pressure was on him in the Tour.

Big George did a poor job, looks like he should stick with Classics and helper duties.

Floyd looks like the real deal. Too bad his stupid team keeps using crappy equipment. Hint, after losing 8 seconds to a flat in the Prolog BEFOE YOU EVEN GOT TO THE LINE, don't use the same ones again. Yeesh, maybe he should go back to Discovery as leader as all the (so far flase) rumors.

Not going to happen you think. Remember, several key riders for Phonak were suspended. New sponsor coming. His contract is expiring, and make no mistake Floyd wants to win multiple Tours while he can. Don't forget the golden rule either:

Unless his brakes are rubbing - I can only guess he didn't get his blood transfusion on time or is missing a dosage..

He appears to be back to "normal". :rolleyes:
didn't one of TMob's team cars get stripped down by customs a couple days ago? maybe CSC got spooked and lightened their load of "recovery enhancements". maybe they all did, it would explain some results today. where's emma oreilly when disco needs her...

Right now, there's about 50 million women jealous of Levi. :D :wink:
