He wrecked along with Spanish rider Iban Mayo after his brake handle caught on a plastic bag carried by a spectator. He remounted and with the rush of adrenaline, charged ahead. He left Alexandre Vinokourov, who started the day just 18 seconds behind Armstrong, 2 minutes 45 seconds back. And he finished 40 seconds ahead of number two, Jan Ullrich of Germany, in addition to receiving a 20 second bonus for winning the stage.

Lance Armstrong fell again today in another wreck, but he got up like Samson with an adrenaline rush and charged on to win Stage 15. Today was July 21st, for Providential Preventative Suffering. The number, 15, is for a covering, which solves all problems. On Day 202, he wrecked and was tangled up with Spanish rider Iban Mayo. The number, 2, stands for divine division, which was fulfilled later when Armstrong separated from the other racers as he moved into the lead. It was the day the Lord had made (Psalm 118:24), and the race was the Lord's (Ecclesiastes 9:11; 1 Samuel 17:47).
Tropical Depressions and typhoons are in the regions of Ecumenical, Political, and Cosmic Babylon in the world. This is a symbol of slavery to the cosmic system of Satan. Typhoon Koni barreled over Hainan Island today, Typhoon Imbudo is bearing down on the island of Luzon in the Philippines with 130 knot winds. The two typhoons are the sign of a witness as they move in parallel like two racing bicyclists. The typhoons overrunning the islands off the mainland symbolize invading armies overrunning the outer lines of defense of the nation. The Philippines are islands off the region of Zebulun, which are associated with the Palestinians at Gaza. The big battle of the Road Map is coming up on July 25 when Palestinian Prime Minister, Abu Mazen, meets with President Bush.
