Racing wrap up

More results to note...
Cyclingnews reports that Karl Menzies was 2nd in the CSC Invitational at Arlington. Jeff Hopkins was 6th. In the 58th Critérium du Dauphine Libere Stuart O'Grady was 7th, now 9th on GC. David McPartland was 11th in the 43rd GP Kanton Aargau/Gippingen.

We are just a month away from Le Tour. The big guns are resting up from recent racing or training in anticipation. All will be putting finishing touches to their form with the coming shorter stage races or training in the mountains. Basso remains favourite but Ullrich hasn't shown himself in the mountains yet, so we don't really know. It's likely that Basso will gain time in the mountains and Ullrich will claim it back in the TTs. Landis is in the mix as well... we'll see how closely he can follow - or maybe lead - Basso and Ullrich. Evans and a few others look good for top 10 but will lack the team to give them a shot at the top 3.
