Why can't stars go out (and stay out) when they are on top?

Don't do it Lance....just keep your memory "as is".

I agree but I suppose I can understand. These guys spent their lives competing at the highest level. To walk away thinking you still have ANY juice (pun semi intended I suppose) left in you mihgt create some internal resentment.

I understand going out on top, but whys it our place to judge an athlete for wanting to give er till they can't give any more.

Please Jsharr, don't scare me like that, I thought you wanted ME to unretire...

By the way, caught two guapotes yesterday and a sabalo. Good times.

The article seems reasonable, but I think Lance is too smart to race for no pay.

It would seem as if he is trying to help racing lose it's drug use reputation. ???????

So is Tailwind Sports still involved? I think he holds a pretty big stake in that, and if his team's not pulling in the big wins (for whatever reason) then he's probably not getting the bucks he expected. Of course, I think his ego is involved in this too.

Why is that so hard to believe? If he's doing it because he enjoys racing, and he's already beyond filthy rich (and still making money from celebrity endorsements and crap like that), why not?
