    collarbone conspiracy!

    I dont believe for a second that L.A. broke his collarbone. I think he just wants to do the TdF as the top dog and is faking an injury to set up his training to do just that.

    Watch out alberto, that texan is shady!

    If by "set up his training" you also mean go visit his special doctors, then yes

    They say he's returning to Austin today. I'll go swing by his place to make sure.

    i thought about this today. let alberto win giro, then tdf is LA's.

    i don't think lance can win the TDF. he'll be almost 38 at the TDF. riis won at 35 and back then i looked up ages of other winners and as i recall there were only a couple of guys older than 35 who won the TDF....ever .

    now if anyone could win the TDF @ almost 38 lance is probably the guy but i'm saying it'll never happen.......

    I dont doubt that LA would do something to maybe get an edge on the other guys for the TDF but maybe this happened so he wont have to do the Giro and its a good way to back out of it and not be seen as week

    You seem to think that Lance is in charge.
