More importantly, for anyone questioning his skills, he absolutely smoked back down faster than anyone. I mean he just crushed the downhill at an insane speed. How’s that humble pie taste?

Not only did Lance beat Wiens, but he beat him by miles. I love Wiens, but it’s obvious that all the road racing put Lance into a different level of fitness than anyone else at the race.

At least 20 miles of the course is a road course and less than 15 miles is true mountain biking single track. Thus, Dave (or another mtn. biker) has to really make time on that 15 miles. It is a truism, that climbing on dirt may be a little different when one stands up, but keeping the butt in the seat and cranking is pretty much the same as on the road. So, advantage Lance on St. Kevin’s and Columbine climbs. Critical race differentiator, Power Line descent. If Lance takes it easy and does not endo, he wins. Otherwise, it will be an interesting day.

I thought I hedged pretty much every declarative statement ;^)

Your argument and conclusion sound correct if you are in a classroom, however, they dont have much to stand on in the real world.

No matter who wins, it should be a great race. […]
