The critics said he's too old, Lance should retire quietly they moaned. Lance Armstrong will be 38 this year & he is 8 seconds behind the the lead at the Tour de France. As a guy pushing 40 I find Lance's comeback inspiring. Why do you have to scale back your training just because you've reached a certain age?
Who says you must settle down and grow fat at some point? Lance has proven he can hang with the elite in one of the most punishing sports in the world. The Tour covers 2,300 miles of rugged terrain in 23 days.
The true test will be the beginning of the Alps on Tuesday, I expect Lance to attack then. Hell, Lance may even start the off in the Alps wearing the yellow jersey. I'll be following these mountains stages closely- the climbs are legendary and the descents are fiendish. Now go take win # 8 Lance!
