Gotta root for Slipstream and the hometown boy Ryder Hesjedal. I wouldn't be surprised if he's up there with the leaders in a few years. His coach has some pretty cool training ideas, some of the most innovative in the business, and best of all those ideas don't include drugs.
It would be something though if Lance could pull off another win. And maybe that crazy bamboo bike ridin Aussie's message will stick in his head. Imagine if Lance and Livestrong advocated 811 or even vegan.
one of lances biggest sponsor in the last 10 years has been bristol myer squibb. im sure lance has something in his contract about talking nutrition and cancer.
ever heard lance talk about nutrition? me either..
i know 100% of the riders in the tour pharmacutically dope at some level. its business. pro sport is entertainment and we like to see race horses rather than donkey's..
i still enjoy bike racing though, cos it gets cycle transport out there..
contador has the doping contacts, the will and the numbers to win this year if he stays upright and remembers to eat enough (had a ruff day recently by forgetting to eat enough during a stage, went hypoglycemic..)
i think cadel will test positive this year or ride 'naturally' and finished 40th overall..
