Tour de Floyd

Floyd_1With Lance Armstrong in retirement and the Tour de France field torn up by a doping investigation, American Floyd Landis has taken advantage in today's stage (bad hip and all) and will almost certainly be the last man wearing the maillot jaune (yellow jersey) after arriving in Paris tomorrow.  He leads by 59 seconds. 

I remember learning about Floyd back in 2002-2003 and wondering if he was the guy who would follow in Lance's footsteps.  I guess we have our answer, at least for this year.  Floyd will have off season hip surgery though, it's that bad, and that may make future wins very difficult.
