Shades Of Sella And Ricco


Mongo ain't buyin' Jelle Vanendert! This cat hangs with Sammy 'Chez all the way up to Luz-Ardiden in Stage 12, and then two days later wins Stage 14 up to Plateau de Beille...on what was the hardest climbing day in the Pyrenee's...against all the top GC contenders...who just happen to be excellent climbers...after just one day's rest removed from what was then the most heroic and impressive performance of his career. I haven't even mentioned that Vanendert had never won a race of any substance prior to getting off the schnide at the "Tour de France" of bike races.
