More on Armstrong's Stage 16 victory

PezCycling News | TDF '04 Stg 16 TT: Lance RIPS THEIR BALLS OFF!

Lance flew out of the start house and hit the first 9% slope of the Alpe revving at what looked like an even higher cadence than normal. Basso looked good for a while, but it wasn’t long before he was losing time. Up [a]head on the road, Ullrich was back to his old self as he used 177.5mm cranks to turn huge gears, his teeth gritted and the sweat pouring off [h]is 6ft body. Jan set the fast times at all checks, but his destiny is second place behind Lance.

Also some good photos, including one of a black banner dedicated to Marco Pantani, whose 1997 record Lance Armstrong came 1 second from matching today.

Lol... I guess I wasn't the only one who spotted that message painted on the route to L'Alpe d'Huez...
