Procycling on Ventoux ITT

Procycling.com | Dauphiné 4: Mayo beats Tyler by 35 secs, Lance by 2 mins!

Procycling takes a look at Mayo's prospects in July, given his extraordinary performance on Mont Ventoux today:

This result will certainly lead to a huge amount of speculation about Armstrong’s prospects of taking a sixth Tour title, as well as some considerable bigging up of Mayo. But the Tour is still a month away, and Mayo still has to negotiate two very tough days in the Alps during this race yet. And once again this year the question has to be asked about whether Mayo has reached his peak too soon. If he comes away victorious from the Dauphiné and claiming he still has more to give, then he really will be shaping up as a serious contender for the Tour title.

On Armstrong, they say he "surely won’t be happy at seeing some of the most likely challengers for his Tour crown receive such a huge confidence boost."
