    Just been on the road forum- and I could not believe it- Lance Armstrong has a fall and there are 10 postings about it.

    Hero worship- or is it a no news day

    He's a celebrity now and that's just the way that goes. At least he is using his celebrity status to promote good causes, bicycling advocacy and cancer research.
