Who are the top contenders for the 2005 Tour de France?
Lance gives No Gifts
First is of course the six time champion Lance Armstrong. Lance comes into this race with not much success this year. He admittedly started his prep late. There is word that they usually start working for the Tour in December, but this year, did not decide on aprogram until the end of January. The late prep showed in some early season appearances. Lance struggled badly in Paris-Nice, epecially in the cold and snow. He did not have a great showing in the Tour de Georgia, where he helped Tom Danielson to overall victory.
