After 2,272.4 miles, 21 days of riding (with only 3 rest days), and 89 hours 39 minutes 30 seconds of actual bike riding time (averaging 25 miles per hour) Floyd Landis has continued the American dominance in le Tour de France! After 7 years of dominance by Lance Armstrong everyone was wondering who was going to become the newest king of the road. I was pulling for George Hincapie, but he just couldn’t do it. So Floyd stepped up and did his best impersonation of Lance. The Phonak cycling team and Floyd are going to be a force to reckon with in the coming years.
Congratulations to Floyd and Team Phonak!
And congrats to all of le Tour winners…..
