I'll be rooting for Lance of course. He's pretty much a hero to a lot of american's now it seems, or he is to me at least.

Ah, La Tour de Dope is back. I wonder if the race will be interrupted by commercials for various pharmaceutical products again :D
Seriously, I don't watch that any more. The challenge each team faces seems to be only how to best hide their doping activities from the officials.

For those of us who are fans of racing in ALL its various incarnations, it was cool to see the initial time trial go through the tunnel in Monaco. Not as fast as Button, etc., but still.....

Peachy, did you give up reading the first time someone made a movie out of a book? Every sport has cheaters and dopes. I'm not giving up on sports because of them. I could argue that cycling has made more of an effort to root out the evil than most other majore sports.

I understand where Peachy is coming from. Remember that last year's winner was disqualified because of the doping. It does tend to ruin the sport. Then all the major riders said that they used drugs to stay competitive, that it was just a given. That said, I'm rooting for Lance, of course. I even got my bike out of storage, got a tire changed, and am back to riding. I'm going to have to get some serious steroids, however, to compensate for my age...haha.

Lance doesn't even need steroids since his body is better for bike riding/running then the normal body. I think his lungs can take in 50% more air then say a avrage body.

But steroids don't really matter to him I bet, he's already missing one or both balls right? :p (That's mainly for the people who hate him, hell look to the left even professor Oak is saying "Bitch Be Tripping Balls!")

Isn't that the truth? He's an incredible specimen!

Lance does have a much higher lactic threshold, VO2 max, and wattage output than a normal person. He just a freakin' beast! He's the best when he's angry too. I think the fact that Contador being named the team's initial leader was just a move on Bruyneel's part to get Lance riled up for victory.
