Armstrong wins in Pyrenees


In the words of Phil Liggett, "Armstrong, who never actually attacked anyone, watched his team crack an elite field then, as all team leaders should, he finished things off with a win on the top of the viciously hard climb of the Plateau de Beille. His 17th stage win of his career."

Lance Armstrong is a long way from winning a record sixth Tour de France, but with a team as strong as US Postal has proven to be, and with the unexpected weakness of his rivals, it's starting to seem inevitable.
