    Way to go, Lance!

    He's probably done more for American road cycling than any other person. I was really glad to hear he won his seventh consecutive Tour de France.

    Lance is fantastic, or was now he's retired. Don't forget though that he has a team to help him, and that is something that he tells us all. Still, fantastic achievements and I am glad to say, that I have watched all 7 of his wins on the TV and been an avid follower of his achievements. There are not many road riders that I can say that of, and it will be a long time before anyone can come anywhere near his record.

    Simply amazing what he's accomplished. He's just so focused as an individual that I have little doubt that his success will continue beyond cycling.

    I think the nay-sayers have justifiably been silenced and that it will be a very long time before anyone accomplishes a feat that compares with this unbelievable effort. I didn't take him as seriously as I should have when he started winning several "Tours" even though I knew the testicular cancer story, but it certainly is something that inspires awe when you consider the difficulty in just winning one such race.
