As the race enters the seventh stage, Armstrong is only fraction of a second behind the leader Swiss Fabian Cancellara. It is already incredible for Armstrong who is on a comeback trial after retiring from the event a few years ago. Mind you this is the game which he ruled unconquered in his hay days. Considering the physical strain this sport imposes, it is commendable that he is keeping up with that sweet sweat. And today is the key day for the racers since they are entering the mountainous terrain stretch. This is where Armstrong once used to thrive at the challenge offered. Can he do it again? It will be amazing if he does it again. Let us wait and watch. My office mate Reda is full time watching this game and I can see the excitement in many such enthusiastic tour de france fans. Apparently,  they will touch Switzerland on 19th and 20th. It is not too far from here. Maya will be coming by then. It will be fun to take atrip to Verbier.  I will be tuned to check the Armstrong progress in anycase!
