cycling didn't even have this attention when we hosted the 03 World Championships.

Actually, I thought the first one was pretty lame. The second one, that was funny.

No mindless hero worship here. Although, I wonder what would Ivan Basso do?

Kidding, Doc.

She had them replaced, not removed.

2nd was worth a chuckle. First was pretty lame.

Still think the whole thing is sad though.
