Posted on another thread (Lance 7) but it belongs here as well...
I'd like to see him (LA) go out hard and scare the crap out of everyone else...then, when nobody else is looking- WHAM! Discovery sends another member out front on a crazy attack only to stay away because everyone is worried about LA. That rider (whoever it is- Hincapie maybe) goes on to defend the Maillot Juane and win the tour.
Lance as a domestique at the top of his career would be something nobody could argue against. Imagine that. That would be one of those truly sportsmanlike things professional cycling sees from time to time. The record stays in tact and everyone can't stop promoting the gentlemanly nature of cycling.
Just my pipe dream.
