Does anyone have links to photos of Armstrong from training camp in which he is not bundled in
layers on the bike or sitting behind a table?

Whoa! Where did that picture come from? If it's a fake, it's a pretty darn good one. Did Armstrong
really decide to pose like Cipo? I'm sure I would have heard of it before. Hats off to whoever
created it!

It's been a poster, actually, but without the rain drops. Saw one on eBay last year.

Must have been laundry day...

A print of this shot was given to the winner of a women's 1/2/3 field at a state championship crit
last season.

Sadly, I can't sprint...

Brian, Your therapist called and said it's ok for you to leave that one 3x5" blank space on your
bedroom wall empty. She said to think of your Armstrong shrine as like a great beauty - not complete
without one minor flaw. I told her you were too obsessed to allow that, but she pointed out that
this is what the therapy is for, after all.

It's an Annie Leibowtz (sp?) pic, taken after the 99 tour for vanity fair, i think.

Just got back from meeting with her. We agreed that it would be appropriate to hang a poster of
Pantani there instead.

Is it possible someone is looking fodder for a troll. For example, "Looks like Lance is .5
pounds heavier than last year at this time, so therefore, he's going to lose the Tour."
Something like that.

Is it the picture of Pantani with his ears "sticking out"?

Did she let you know what the ears "sticking out" meant in relation to your diagnosis?

Good luck.

Hardly fodder for a troll. Looking at the effects of Winter on the TdF contenders is cycling
newsworthy. Ullrich looks very good at this point. The photos of Armstrong are not clear. It could
be some pounds or just lots of clothing layers. I'd be curious to know his weight/fat % compared to
previous years.

Assume Lance can climb at 1700 m/hr, on avg. There are 21 cat 2 or better climbs. Assume these
average 600 meters climbing -- 12600 total meters. Assume bike+body+stuff weighs approx 170lb.
Assume climbing speed ~ 1/weight.

Time lost = 12600*0.5/170/1700 = 1min 18 seconds.

Further assume he stops to call Cheryl at the top of every climb. Assume he talks for 1 minute. 3
climbs end at the finish, so don't count.

Total time lose = 21 min 18 seconds.

It's over.

Anyone know the number of Krispy Kreme franchises on the route? This also needs to be factored in.

Just wondering...

There are lots of you out there that claim to "hate" Lance, but yet you can't stop talking, or in
this case, writing about him. Why is that? Just wondering.
