Daily Peloton | TdF Jambon Report: Stage 12

The Daily Peloton adds their impressions of the ITT, with their daily "Golden Hams" and "Ham-Gazers".

Among the golden:

"RoboJan" Ullrich (Team Bianchi). Boy, what an ass-whuppin'. Before the Tour, I commented that Ullrich was following the advice of the United States' 26th President, Theodore Roosevelt, who believed that it was wise to "walk softly and carry a big stick." Ullrich has kept his mouth quiet and his aspirations humble, but today he took out that big stick and started whacking the hell out of the other riders.

Among the gazers:

Lance "El Jefe" Armstrong (United States Postal Service presented by Berry Floor). ... Lance took one on the chin today, but he is the champ, and he will come out swinging tomorrow. He will attack now because he has to, and the dogfight that ensues once he launches off the front should be the most exciting racing we've seen yet. Cue up your VCRs, strap on your crash helmets, and return your seats to their full, upright positions: the Pyrenees are coming.

I'd read it all.
