Maybe We Need A Senior's Tour
The return of the Texan is getting more press than the presidential race. Not only that, it seems to have prompted a slew of possible comebacks. Landis, Chechu, Beloki, Boogerd. Even Ullrich isn't saying never. Next year's peloton is shaping up to look like we're back in the 90s. Maybe Festina will get back in the fray. And what about ex-DSs? I miss Manolo Saiz. "Venga!"
Here's an article on Beloki, Boogerd, and Ullrich.
But, really, just what is on Lance's mind? This is the question everyone wants to know. This article covers the topic in depth and provides a lot of links.
It's all fairly strange. Perhaps not as strange as our election, but strange indeed. Above is a pic of Lance in a race yesteray. I'm not saying that guy next to him can't ride, but he looks like a guy out for a Sunday stroll around the park. And he looks nothing at all like Alberto Contador. Big Tex has a long long way to go.
