Big Day For Discovery

July 12, 2005

Today is the day that we will separate the men from the boys at the Tour de France. In today's 10th stage, the first real mountain test in the Alps, expect Lance Aremstrong and his Discovery teammates to come under attack.

First and foremost, the German T-Mobile team  is not only placed well to apply pressure, they're also hungry to place one of their riders at the top of the general classification. Jan Ullrich, Alexandre Vinokourov, and Andreas Kloeden of the T-Mobile squad, are all legitimate contenders for the overall title, and today might be the day that one (or all) of them strike out for the top spot.

June 23, 2005

Lance Armstrong is one of only two American riders on the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team’s Tour de France Roster.

New York native George Hincapie will join Armstrong, but the rest of the squad looks like a roll call of the EU:

  • Jose Azevedo of Portugal
  • Jose Luis Rubiera, Manuel Beltran, and Benjamin Noval of Spain
  • Paolo Savoldelli of Italy
  • Yaroslav Popovych of Ukraine
  • Pavel Padrnos of the Czech Republic.

Armstrong believes the team is built to win.

“I think we have fielded our strongest team ever with this formation,” said Armstrong. “It has many consistent elements from years past, like the Spanish armada for the climbs, strong guys like George, Pavel and Benjamin, the Giro winner in Savoldelli, plus a guy like Popo (Popovych) with a very bright future.
