I wonder if all the people who bought Trek bicycles over the last decade can sue saying the bikes were misrepresented as actually helping you go fast. Its not about the bike, its the EPO. ha

I actually was asking the same question with my friend the other day. I was wondering if the people who started cycling because of lance armstrong are going to quit cycling because of lance armstrong now LOL

cycling has definitely experienced a boom in popularity, probably in large part due to the strong appeal and "coolness" that armstrong brought to the sport. But I am no expert on the public consumer history of the sport

It's all good! He says he's gonna help clean up cycling! Woot!

Stick that one on whomever raised him to be such a self centered, ENTITLED dipsh!t...




EDITED:

"that doesn't really get us anywhere"...

And where is it that you were wishing to go???...

Is Lance's life something that means so much to you that you feel obligated to find his answer???...

I am obviously MISSING your point...

How about some HELP???...

Or are you looking for the answer to EVERYONE's doping issues???...

Anybody see 60 minutes last night? It was a bit refreshing to see someone in authority say it like it is. If Oprah had tried that Lance would have walked out in a huff in under a minute.

I bagged this peak up McGee canyon back in 92 with this young impetuous cycling star who ended up riding with Lance for a short while...This kid ended up punching Lance out at a training camp...Now i can understand why...This young guy ended up living on the streets of sacramento as a crack head , revived his cycling career for a short while then ended up back on the streets...The tumultuous world of bike racing...

Rotten Johny, My best friend has a brother who was a cycling mentor to that kid when he first started racing in Sacramento. I think he is still on the streets of Sacramento I think he a wife and kid around. His second comeback race was a crit in Lodi that he won- and of course part of the prize was a huge bottle of wine. But he was already off the wagon by then. Sad story....

Trophy....It was funny hiking with this young bike racer , Chad ...He was almost running the whole day and was super fit...We were climbing this 3rd class death choss heap and Chad had never climbed before....Falling would have meant death but he was clueless to the realities of mountainneering...Everything was loose and pulling too hard would send these large boulders tumbling down the vertical dirt...I was the first one on the summit and found a jar with a notebook inside...Seeing that there was no name for the summit , i wrote my name on the front of the summit register....When Chad scrambled up to the summit he read the name of the Peak which was my last name and not knowing my last name , fell for it...I now have a summit in the sierra named for me and am famous...On the run out i asked Chad who was the fastest rider on his team and he replied Me , myself , and I....He said it without thinking and meant it...From then on we called him Me , Myself , and I...The streets of sacramento...Yes...!

If an individual is a dedicated and serious cyclist, they are doing it for themselves . . . the current drama in the media would have no effect on their activity. Let's face it folks, riding hard is not for the weak willed.

Oh just one more little thing . . . the TDF is no joke and yes Lance won seven of them.

Livestrong! He has done a lot for fundraising and giving people the strength to fight cancer. My Dad always wore his live strong bracelet. That is the biggest victory NO ONE can take away from Lance.

Lance may be a chump but a lot of people suddenly bought those trek plastic bikes and started exercising and getting in shape so all is not lost...

You must have facts in hand that the rest of us don't. How many thousands has Lance Armstrong killed?

Actually, I know the answer to that, just f*#king with you.

If anything you have a flair for useless hyperbole.

So perhaps the savings to the government in healthcare costs more than makes up for the investment in US Postal?
