"I copy that" is walkie-talkie talk for - I understand, will do, gotcha, ok, alright, yup, uh-huh, and much more depending on the inflection of the voice.

The tour de france is in a bit of trouble. It's really upsetting me. If this were any other sport I could find people to talk about it with.... argh.

anyway, today I was going to give you my predictions for the race it was going to be

10)Evans or *Vinokourov - if he was going to race

Now, Basso, Ullrich and Mancebo won't start because of doping allegations and Vinokourov doesn't have a team.

My new Predictions, I decided to go very patriotic:
1)Hincapie (USA, Discovery)
2)Liephiemer (USA, Gerolsteiner)
3)Landis (USA, Phonak)
4)Kloden (Germany, T-Mobile)
5)Evans (Australia, Davitamon-Lotto)
6)Rasmussen (Denmark, Rabobank)
7)Popovych (Ukraine, Discovery)
8)Valverde (Spain, Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears)
9)? Azevedo (Portugal, Discovery)
10)? Savoldelli (Italy, Discovery)

I didn't think Team Discovery Channel was going to do super well this year, but now they are going to do really well. I put 9 and 10 up there, because I don't know who will get those spots, and I don't know who will be Discovery's #1 rider... they aren't going to choose who they will fight for until they hit the mountains - I just hope it will be Hindcapie, because he has paid his dues. Popovych is good, but he is young.

I think Kloden will slip into Jan Ullrich's spot on T-Mobile with great ease, I may have put him top three, but I wanted to stay in the US.
