Col du Joux-Plane - Floyd Style

What an incredible stage!  Floyd shows the world that cyclists are studs and that he has a “never say die” heart.  I had to tear myself away for an early meeting but was able to listen to the last 5k of the Joux-Plane to the finish over the phone.  I also loved the post on the TdF website:

16:57 - It’s All Downhill Now Floyd!

Landis has reached the top of the final climb of stage 17. He is going to follow in the footsteps of: Greg LeMond, Davis Phinney, Jeff Pierce, Andy Hampsten, Lance Armstrong, Tyler Hamilton, George Hincapie and Dave Zabriskie... the other Americans to win a stage at the Tour.

Makes me proud to be an American!
