Leave history to history.

It's not going to be easy for Lance this year. First, no one has ever won six tours, and all of the previous five-time winners tried; the legendary Eddie Merckx among them. Second, three ex-Posties -- Americans Tyler Hamilton and Levi Leipheimer, and Spaniard Roberto Heras -- formerly rode with the man in yellow and are leaders of their teams, all vying for the win. Add in the incredible Jan Ullrich and Iban Mayo and there's an excellent field of rivals on the pavement. If we're as lucky as last year, we won't know the winner until the penultimate stage of the race.
