    Lance is back

    Apparently going to race in the '09 tour and a few other races.

    Report: Armstrong to return, ride in '09 Tour - Other sports- nbcsports.msnbc.com

    He went out on top. I think this is a bit of a bad move by him. Have to think he's putting some endorsements at risk. He gets blown away, his image is tarnished. Flipside, of course, is that he wins and is more popular than ever.

    We'll see.

    Maybe he found a new doping method.

    Where is the neg rep feature?

    This is great news! I love the tour and it is so much more fun when you are pulling for someone.

    VeloNews | Sources: Lance Armstrong coming back | The Journal of Competitive Cycling.

    According to sources, the Texan will post all of his internally tested blood work online, in an attempt to establish complete transparency and prove that he is a clean athlete.

    What exactly is "internally tested blood work".

    I have an "internal scale " at home that says I'm 6'4" and 190 pounds

    What does this mean for Contador? Assuming of course Astana gets an invite to the Tour.

    Do people seriously think he did not dope? Seriously?

    I seriously think he did not. He was tested more than any other athlete in history, and they all came out clean. If the french had any inkling of doping they would have never let him pee by himself, but they have nothing on him.

    I'm sure he took some type of steroids under doctor prescription to fight the cancer. Outside of that I have no idea, but in today's world I would not be surprised one bit.

    Yes, I seriously don't think he doped. I believe in the goodness of some people. He doesn't look or act like he has anything to hide. You could always tell Barry Bonds was lying through his teeth. Maybe he did dope, but for his sake, I hope he didn't. He's someone who is an inspiration to a lot of athletes and people around the world. I hope he didn't so that means until I'm proven otherwise, I don't think he doped.

    According to his book he did not take the epo that they wanted him to take because he was worried about failing tests later on. This is the actual use of epo, to build red cells back up after chemo.

    Well then I stand corrected. How much money does one need to beat cancer without steroids? Lance Armstrong money I guess.

    Get back to work CyGrad07, your taking time off for Vegas soon.
