2008 Tour route suits Iban


After the 2008 Tour de France parcours had been unveiled, one thing went through my mind; this route is one for Iban. With no prologue, no TTT and the first of two individual time trials no more than 30 kilometres in length, coupled with some heavy mountain-stages in the last week, it should suit Iban oh so well. And of course, the inclusion of the Alpe d'Huez on stage 17 bring back many good memories for us Iban fans. A repeat of that beautiful day back in 2003 would top it all, and I'm sure Iban is already looking forward to it. Though, stage 10 to Hautacam will probably also be one of Iban's best chances for glory come next July. Of course, it remains to be seen if he will even ride it, but if he do, the rest should watch out...

Iban Iban Iban!

I hope so that he will ride it. A Tour without him would be a spoiled Tour!

Luckily the Tour doesn't belong to the UCI anymore!

I have my doubts, ASO will do everything to keep riders they suspect for using doping away, and I'm afraid Iban will be one of those riders, no matter how his case will end...
