The Electric Commentary

Lance is in yellow.

Is it for good?  My guess is probably so.  Armstrong won stage 15 and reclaimed the overall lead today.  Most of his main competition is out of the race, like Tyler Hamilton, or too far back to be any real threat, like Leipheimer, Heras and Mayo.  Basso, who Armstrong outsprinted to take the stages and is currently in second 1.25 back, should keep it interesting for a while.  He's riding extremely well and is one of the few people that can hang, maybe even beat Lance in the mountains.  Tomorrow's individual time trial up l'Alpe d'Huez should be interesting but after that the US Postal team and the remaining flat stages will make Lance insurmountable.
