Lance Armstrong vs. his rivals

This commentary on Lance Armstrong's prospects for victory in the Tour de France appeared yesterday on, so it's already outdated -- he won today's time trial race to the summit of L'Alpe d'Huez -- but a friend alerted me to this great line:

Once in the Pyrénées for two hard climbing stages, Armstrong punched the accelerator with his trademark high-cadence rhythm, and the favorites fell away like the French defending Paris.
Never miss a chance to dis the French.
