What has Lee been smoking?

Saturday, July 9th, 2005

Whatever it is, it’s good. Franco storms ahead in the stage with a 41 point haul, leaving Keir in the dust. Mitchell must rue the fact that he shared that fella with Franco : his lead rider (S. Gonchar) blew a whitey and leaves the tour. Just 13 riders left in the Mitchell team. The […]

Tour shock : outsider pulls ahead

Monday, July 4th, 2005
