Lance Armstrong to Livestrong at the 2009 Tour

According to the always seemingly shaky cycling press and even more questionable anonymous cycling sources, Lance Armstrong is going to spandex up for the 2009 Tour de France. Or, as the announcer at the All-Valley Karate Tournament from The Karate Kid might say: “Lance Armstrong is going to ride? Lance Armstrong is going to ride!!! This is what it’s all about folks. How’s the steroid accusation problem, son?”

    ASO will exclude Astana from it’s races if Armstrong is involved, and the Tour of GA is off for next year.

    He keeps on popping up at local races around Texas. I hope that continues.

    That’s nut.

  5. Bethany says:

    He has some ball doing that, at his age.

  6. Katherine says:

    Best U.S. cyclist ever: Greg LeMond.

    That is unless he meets another blonde du jour.
    Hopeless, sad, athlete can’t give up on attention.

  8. Zac Crain says:

    @Katherine: I prefer Dave Stoller or Marcus Sommers.

  9. Katherine says:

    The Cutter and Sommers never won Le Tour with buckshot in their lungs. To their credit, they never used EPO either.

  10. Zac Crain says:

    Also: Sommers rode in the Hell of the West while his brain was bleeding.

    @Katherine Too bad LeMond has such a bad attitude toward anyone who does better than he did. I had one of his bikes for a while, because I was a fan from his Tour days. When he started trashing other riders – regardless of doping – and blaming some weird illness for his own decline, I lost respect for him. Sure, he accomplished a lot, especially after the hunting incident, but I don’t know that he could have kept up with some of today’s riders.

    I’d have to pick Hincapie as my favorite American rider Even though he hasn’t won the Tour, he’s finished it 12 of 13 times.

  12. Dallasite says:

    Recovering from testicular, lung, and brain cancer, and then winning seven Tours isn’t good enough for you Katherine?

    No, I don’t buy into the Armstrong doping theory.

    doesn’t everyone know? he’s more aerodynamic with only one ball.
