Lance is gonna make history

I done read in the Washington Post today that Lance Armstrong is going to compete in the 2004 Tour and in the 2005. He is looking to be the first one to win 6 and make history and all that. After 2006 he says he's unsure of, he may want to retire. He's also gonna compete in 2004's other big races.

He's so great
I wanna have his baby

O yea and whuts this damn Subaru commercial with Armstrong riding through a rough woods trail on his mtb? He trains road strictly

He did @ least one cyclocross race last year, and he also mountain bikes. Where did you get the idea that he trains only on the road?????

You don't know much about Lance Armstrong do you? He races MTB occasionally as well as cyclocross.

Training and racing as a pro are different things. A couple of links for your pleasure...

He probably wouldn't have won his 5th TdF if it weren't for his cyclocross/MTB experence nor his time bike communting. (read his book)

Lance will go for 6, but the talk about 7 may be an attempt to keep his better team members from looking for new employment, like Heras did.
