    This will be interesting. Very interesting.

    Lance confirmed for Milan-San Remo

    Oh how I wish I had a more reliable source of watching this than cycling.tv.

    I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm more than slightly excited about this.

    True, Milan-San Remo really isn't a big race.

    Or not.

    He's racing the Giro, so doing Flanders doesn't quite make sense.

    The race will be very interesting, indeed. But not particularly because Lance will be there. It is a sprinters race more often than not.

    I think he did forget, when he was referring to the guy speaking of cobbles. Or at least I sure hope he was being sarcastic.

    if Cancellara can win MSR, so can Armstrong.

    but no, I don't think he'll win it.

    Several alternative feeds have been discussed on Twitter. Use #procycling as a sort tag. http://www.steephill.tv is one that may carry it. I haven't tried these but several Euro feeds have been listed, too.

    True sarcasm needs no emoticons.

    The first 270k, yes I agree.
    That last 30k though is a fantastic battle!
    I don't think people realize how g**damn fast those guys are climbing the Cipressa and Poggio.

    I disagree. the poggio and cipressa climbs and descents are edge of the seat excitement for me.

    You think he's entering it to win, or you think he's entering to get some miles in? The first 270k, as pointed out, resembles a fast group ride. It's the end where the real riders come out to play, and when I say "end", I mean the Poggio. My most optimistic scenario has him leading the charge up the Poggio for a teammate, then lettings things sort themselves out.

    Also I haven't done any research ("due diligence" in fancy speak) but does any of the Giro route go over MSR stuff? This would be a good way to recon things. And since Lance would probably want to go check out some of the Giro climbs anyway, this would be a way to schedule in a trip there and let someone pick up the tab (aka "appearance fee").

    Yeah, Astana was twittering about this. Looks like Lance is really getting some mileage in.

    Has anyone ever tried paying for cycling.tv? Does it make it reliable enough to actually watch?

    Pre-cancer, Lance raced to win. I remember Sean Yates going 60kph to get LA onto the Cipressa first.

    Post-cancer, Lance uses MSR for 7 hours of nervous pack riding and 1 hour of motorpacing at the end.

    It's not about the miles per se, it's about those miles at speed in an amped peloton.

    Is that the race with that nasty little climb and then that crazy 7-8 mile hairy descent into the finish at the end of like 150 miles of hammering?

    The end of that race was really amazing. They were descending on wet roads last year and there was one really nasty crash.
