Godefroot satisfied

T-Mobile manager Walter Godefroot was happier with his magenta troupe in today's 14th stage, as once again they managed to put Lance Armstrong's Discovery Channel team under pressure on the penultimate climb, leaving their captain isolated. Although Lance was more than up to the task against Ullrich and Basso, if anything had gone wrong like a crash or a mechanical, it could have been a different story in Ax-3-Domaines.

"Today there was nothing more to do," Godefroot told Belgian TV1. "We tried to break Armstrong's team, and that worked. If you wait for Lance to control things, then certainly you don't have a chance. I'm not disappointed. Armstrong is simply the best. Tactically, it couldn't be better, all the comments count as rubbish, we do what we can. Attack tomorrow? That's possible."
