    Armstrong receives death threats
    From correspondents in Besancon, France
    July 24, 2004

    SECURITY was stepped up to protect Tour de France race leader Lance
    Armstrong after the American received threats before the Alpe d'Huez
    stage midweek, race director Jean-Marie Leblanc revealed today.

    "There were threats against Lance Armstrong and we took these into
    account," said Leblanc, without giving details of the threats.

    Hundreds of thousands of spectators lined the 15.5km climb up the
    legendary Alpe d'Huez on Wednesday to see Armstrong move closer to a
    record sixth Tour de France title.

    However, on several occasions, some riders came under verbal attack
    from the more boisterous sections of the crowd.

    Armstrong said after winning the time trial that some of the things he
    had heard had been "disgusting".

    Leblanc said that Armstrong had been notified of the threats before
    the time trial and the race director said he could understand why the
    American had felt uneasy during the climb.

    "I can understand why Armstrong said the stage had made him feel
    uneasy," added Leblanc. "Now we know why. He had good reason to fear
    for his security.

    It sure LOOKED like security was beefed up and they were keeping
    potential attackers away!

    I couldn't find the part of the article you quoted where the origin of the threat was identified. Could you point it out?

    It should also be noted that the official statement meantioned threats, but not death threats.

    Thank you.

    collective asses!

    They'll probably blame this on their Muslim problem also.

    spitting on him.

    And just where did you get that info?

    The story only mentions threats and that Lance heard some
    "disgusting" words.

    Nothing about some kraut spitting...Not that I'd be surprised,
    french usually fart.

    Have you ever seen a neo-con redneck bothering about what is true? Lies,
    that's all they can produce. And pathetic ones. Seems they wouldn't exist
    out of their blatant xenophobia.

    From some real cycling news sources, as opposed to skimming an article
    by Fox. Try this, for starters:

    If that's what security looks like to the French, I am afraid.

    The ride through Paris tomorrow is the fattest terrorist target we'll see, and
    the promoters think that having nut-job fans within spitting distance is secure.

    Yikes.
