This gets me going!

When it is rainy or cold or I feel kind of sluggish, this gets me going. I watch this one and I want to get on the bike!

There will be those of you who don't like it, please don't flame me, it works for me.

I like the fellow running along side them with a pitchfork, that devil! Gives you a feeling for how fast they are really going, that he seems to have no trouble keeping up without a bike.

I agree - - "the look" is awesome! Lance isn't just turning to see who's behind . . . it's as if he's saying "come and get me if you can!"
