This guy will win the stage Friday by 35 minutes and take the yellow.

Don't laugh!

They'll let him, because they know he can't TT.

Only if he gets swept up in a hurricane and deposited in OZ.

On that note, I predict Robbie McEwen pulls a little sleight of hand,
rigs it so he finishes the stage at the same time as the rest of the
pack starts, and takes both green and yellow.

Sorry, I laughed because it sounds entirely plausible.

To try to avoid an American from winning the Tour yet another time,
the organizers have announced that in the spirit of last year's final
stage, the final sprint bonuses will be announced on the final lap,
but will be at least 35 minutes.

Several riders were quick to point out that Australians definitely are
not simply Americans with bad accents. Floyd Landis is now arguing he
is an Australian with a bad accent.

The organizers promised to sort this all out sometime during the final
lap in Paris.

I bet Henri Desgrange would have tried something like this, back in the
day.
