Disco Wins the TTT

July 5, 2005


I love le Tour. It’s always a drama that is played out before our eyes. Everyone expected Discovery to win – and win big. But Team CSC led – until the last few kilometers. And then Discovery kicked it up a notch – and Team CSC ran into troubles. Dizzy (Dave Zabriskie) crashed and finished w/o the team. Terrible break for him. In the end, Disco won the stage by a mere 2 seconds. That means that Johan’s team has won the TTT for the past three years. What an amazing accomplishment.

Oh, and Lance is in yellow!
