Stage 17 of the Tour de France is FLOYD! Floyd Landis with a vengeance, Floyd with guts, Floyd with Panaché... Yeah, Baby - Panaché with a capital P.... Comprendez-vous?

An awesome, unbelievable ride by a true champion. Floyd fighting the mountains alone, fighting the devils from yesterday and overcoming all. OLN has a commercial that asks, “What is character?” Today, Floyd Landis showed the Tour what character is.

Bravo to Sastre, bravo to Pereiro, bravo to Moreau, bravo to Schleck. And bravo to Dessel, who went arse over teakettle on a turn, jumped up and back on his bike in seconds, without even looking to see where he was hurt.

What a stage, what a blockbuster of a stage. After yesterday, was there anyone who thought they’d see Floyd on the podium as winner and only seconds away from the Yellow Jersey? C’est Le Tour with it’s best face on....

  • Fantastic. I was supposed to be telecommuting, but finally surrendered and just watched the whole glorious stage.

  • I found it great to see a real 'demarrage' again!
    It's been a long time a go since I saw a cyclist leaving the peloton so early in the stage in order to win his own way!
    I'll always remember this stage!
    And I admire Floyd Landis for his strong will, the same way I did/do Lance Armstrong.
