For the first time in this 90th Tour he was asked about the possibility that he will not be the leader when the race concludes on July 27 in Paris.
"I'll just go home, have a cold beer and come back next year," he said. "I said before the start in Paris that I knew this race would be close. But to have it come down to the next two stages in the Pyrenees and the final time trial, this is a bit of a surprise."
"Tomorrow is a very big day, a big stage," Armstrong said. "We'll see if I improve overnight and can attack."
