American rider, Floyd Landis has made up for his earlier bad day (Stage 16) and is within 30 seconds of the leader, Spanish rider Oscar Pereiro. Landis is an excellent time-trialer and has a reasonable shot at making up the time during tomorrow’s final time trial. A zillion miles and almost three weeks into the Tour, it’s coming down to the wire. That’s one of the reasons that this is a great event.
Dave Jilk worries that if an American wins again, other countries might start losing interest in cycling. 😉
