Jan Ulrich decided to challenge Lance & Lance is looking to apply some "Texas Justice"

Also, Ramussen is losing time big time (he's already lost over a minute).

Ulrich and the other Telecom boys put some serious pressure on Lance today. They made an attack that stipped away all of Lance's teammates, so that he was isolated. Then Lance got dropped by Ulrich's group. Lance was definitely in some difficulty. After a few minutes, he was able to consolidate his resources and launch an attack that allowed him to bridge the gap to the Ulrich group where he was able to keep pace. Finally, on the last climb of the day he rode every one else out of his group to finsih second (another rider had escaped very early in the day and was barely able to hold on to his lead).

Tomorrow's stage could even be more dramatic with several category 1 climbs before the final HC climb at the finish.
