Do you think Lance has a few beers to unwind...

...during the 3 weeks of the grueling race that is known as the Tour Day France?
He talks alot about his fondness for beer...

I'm going to guess not until Sunday night, I'm sure. He's too methodical and focused. Though he's looser and looser in the interviews. Maybe after the ITT on Saturday? I can only imagine the party he must throw in Austin....

Maybe if he gets $hitfaced, this may take effect on Sheryl Crow's looks...

i would highly doubt it. this is a man who weighs his food, avoids manual labor because he might develop muscles he can't use, and returned a watch from a sponser because it weighed too much. something tells me he isn't sipping brew on the side.

I think he sticks to a pretty strict diet during the TDF.

Is Lance sneaking a sip of beer at the TdF?

Have you ever tried French beer?

It's worse than American beer. So, I'm sure he's not even tempted.

It's a whole city wide celebration. Pretty much EVERYone comes out, well they did last year. I'm sure this year will be a blow-out.

Shiner Bock is my favorite beer, locally brewed. So good.

sorry to be serious, but I'm sure some riders have wine or champagne at their evening meals during the Tour, right?

I can't believe they do this. I'm usually totalled after a hard 100km ride, and if I had any alcohol, I'd be TOTALLY totalled!!

Correct. A win guarantees a glass of champagne for the riders with dinner.....or a birthday during the race.


Stu said he was looking forward to a frothy on the 2nd rest day.
