Default LANCE ARMSTRONG a true sports hero!

What an amazing athelete! Lance takes back command of the
Tour de France today after falling near the end of the stage. And
just days a go the European sports pundits were writing him off.
Don't mess with TEXAS!

In a time when sports gives all it's attention and headlines to
your various multi-million dollar rouges - it's nice to see Lance
doing so well.

Hi,

He's a formidable athlete and a good sport to boot.

I watch the last hour this afternoon and was truly impressed with his performance.

The chevalresque waiting of Jan Ulrich for Lamce to recover from his fall and the subsequent adrenaline rush may well cost Ulrich the Tour...

Exciting and exhilerating sports event,

something else to mention, Jan Ulrich was a good sport in holding
up and allowing lance to catch up with the group, after the fall.

"I'm really grateful for Jan for remembering my gesture of two years ago. What goes around, comes around," said Armstrong, who waited for Ullrich when he crashed coming down a steep descent in the 2001 Tour. "The tables were turned two years ago when I did what I did. I appreciated he did what he did."

should be interesting to watch the time trial on Saturday!

It was simply returning a favor that was extended to him earlier in the tour. The best will win in the end.

I didn't know he overcame cancer. What an inspiration story.

He must be American :P

If he wins next year he will become the only man to ever win 6 tour's. It would also be in succession. He's a freak, not an athlete.

Default Lance Armstrong banned and stripped of titles

Wow. Poor Lance.
"After more than a decade spent trying to out-pedal the truth, it finally caught up to him."
I don't really know what the truth is, other than Lance Armstrong's success did raise awareness of cycling in the States for the better.
Oh, well. We still have LeMond.

I do have to wonder, the type of cancer he has overcome and high hormone levels?

Wins and/or doping aside, I would still suggest his level of effort and determination was as high as it gets. A true athlete. Doping may have let him win, but in no way was it easier than the effort the next person out out. It is hard to have hero's fall. Especially when they are from Texas.
