Tour organisers get shirty with Lance
Is it just me, or did anyone else find Lance Armstrong's black shirt 'stunt', tedious, maybe even a little sanctimonious and possibly disrespectful to the Tour?
Yes Lance, we know you survived cancer, we know you lived to win the Tour 7 times, we know about your excellent Livestrong campaign and yes we know there are millions of sufferers worldwide, but do you think you're the only person capable of reminding us all of this?
I should think every family in the world has lost a loved one with this terrible disease and we all deal with it in our own way - deal with the loss and do what we can to support sufferers and research into a cure. I don't need a Lance Armstrong publicity stunt to remind me of this.
