Lance...is he done?

Is he done?


"The object remains the Tour, and I think I'm on track," Armstrong said. "I didn't think I was good enough to win (the Georgia race), but I felt better toward the end of the race than I did at the beginning, so that's a good sign."

Hard to say. I think he's got a little Jerry Rice / Michael Jordan in him. I doubt he'll go away completely unless he's terribly injured, incarcerated, or swept into another public pursuit which involves cheering crowds (opera tenor, perhaps?). I'm sure he'll put in a good effort at the TDF this year.

He'll scale back, get back into triathlons, oddball stuff like off-road duathlons, take up coaching and gestate plans for a clothing line and eventual frame company bearing his label. In the midst of it all will come a celebrated but ultimately fruitless 2008 comeback with the not-yet-in-exisitence up-and-comming-and-desperate-for-a-high-profile-captain Team Starbucks. In any case, the "family time" line is likely a bit of a sham.

It's definately PSYOPS...Lance is Bush's new weapon to infultrate France and find those WMD from IRAQ...The TDF is just a cover!!!

What's to infiltrate? He just wants to piss them off.
I am waiting on my friend who just went back to Switzerland to talk to Steinhauser and give me a little inside on Ullrich.
I believe Lance will make a good showing this year but I am not so sure he will win.
If you look way back you will see that I was with the "Lance will win crowd" last year and previously but he will have a hard time this year I believe.
It's Jans last go round ,most likely,so it's" balls to the wall time".
I still maintain that Lance will get into promoting and creating American Races.
Cycling could repalce football in a few hundred years.

I wonder if Ullrich will be motivated to beat what appears to be "a not so motivated Lance???"

Lance has nothing really to race for anymore. He has the record 6 straight wins. What else is there to accomplish in regards to the Tour?

From what I know he is trying to focus on the TDF and peak at the right time but I should be hearing more in a week or so.
