    Or institute a USCF-like upgrade system to qualify for Road Bike Racing Posts.

    I would, of course, be the #1 Ranked BF Member. I may be a Cat IV on the road, but on BF I'm a Cat I.

    Maybe you should have to use your racing license to gain access to post here...

    we'll let the non-racers ask their questions in the regular forum.

    Because Armstrong has reached that level in popular culture, where he transcends his sport, and becomes not just the most recognized athlete in his sport, but a cultural icon, such as Michael, and Tiger.

    Whatever you think of Armstrong, it's pretty amazing that he's one of the most recognized athletes in the World, coming from a fringe sport.

    Armstrong by itself is vague. There's also Kristen Armstrong. You know, the Gold Medalist from last year's Olympics. Wait, you probably don't know.

    Neil was famous, as was Stretch...

    edit: as just "Lance" he only has to contend with Bass and boils

    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

    Had Eddie been Eddie in the last 10 years of 24 hour news cycles and the interwebs he'd have been huge. Also Lance never hd the cool nicknames....would you rather be called Lance or The Cannibal?
