Armstrong still allows himself to dream of an 8th win

8:36 am on 23 July 2009

Although Lance Armstrong has promised not to try to overhaul his Astana team mate Alberto Contador as overall race leader he's still allowed himself to dream of an eighth Tour de France victory.

The 37-year-old American says he's happy where he is and if someone even remotely considered going against team directions when he was leader he'd have been sent home the next day.

However, he says while circumstances could help him to an eighth win he's not counting on that as Contador's the best rider and is unlikely to make a mistake.
