Tour De Lance: Stage 18

By Wyatt Earp | July 21, 2005

MENDE, France – Lance Armstrong feels so sure of victory, so ready for retirement, that he doesn’t want to get off his bike. Not now, with the end this tantalizingly close.

Why don’t we just not stop? Let’s just keep riding, get it over with,” Armstrong said when teammate George Hincapie, pedaling alongside during Thursday’s 18th stage, reminded him that only three days and 219.6 miles remained until the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

That would be better for me,” the six-, nearly seven-time champion said. “The sooner it’s done, the better.

Ullrich, who has three second-place finishes behind Armstrong, said: “We tried everything. But Lance is so strong, just like last year. We tried to attack him, but you have to accept he is the strongest. The way he rides, the way his team rides. He deserves it.”(AP)

Three days and 219.6 miles left until the greatest American athlete wins his 7th straight Tour de France. Vive le Lance!

    Anything that sticks it to the frogs is a plus in my book.
