    What Lance should do!

    After the comments made by LeBlanc and new tour director Christian Prudhomme I think Lance needs to gather a clown posse and enter the tour next year and "stink" it up for a eighth time.

    I disagree.

    My post was just a joke but I wonder why so many people seem to think he should just go away. I believe the Tour will be very interesting next year due partly to Lance leaving but as always the French see it their way and I think they could do better.

    I think Discovery should frog stomp the TdF next year, maybe with George Hincapie as team leader.

    Next year is going to be great. I found this year to be a bit bland. Lance just played it safe the whole way. Next year, Jan and Ivan will be duking it out.

    i think the tour is about who trains the best and works the hardest and has the team to back them up and for many years its been lance...i believe he has shown us all that by winning alot of tours...there are so many that hate him for winning...why hate a person for doing there best i applaud it and everyone should do the same...i think he is the greatest but if there is someone better lets see them step it up and prove it...

    1. Lance winning 8 tours will not silence the French, nothing will help or change relations between Lance & the French cycling establishment.

    2. Judging by how easily he won #7 he could totally dominate another tour, but I think it would be kinda boring like this last one was.

    3. George isn't gonna win the TDF, no how, no way.

    I think the greatest validation for Lance is to show that his method of training works on any talented cyclist, and if he's training whoever is taking over the top spot like he trains, and they win, that'll pretty much silence the critics (well, for a month or so at least).

    I agree with you, but unfortunately society has an issue with something like this. Apparantly it is easier to whine and complain, than it is to work your A$$ off and become successful. Few people have such strong work ethics it offends and threatens them to the point of becomming belligerent and angry.

    I rather pity these people as they will never understand.

    I think it goes deeper than just Lance. It looks to me as a French vrs America thingy. A Yank dominating the holier than thou French in thier own race has got to hurt.

    The french should be used to it by now. They couldnt win any of the WW's (or any wars for that matter) they can't quell 21st century riots. they can't win the TDF. My props to a man who went from a nobody to a nobody to defying death and becoming a household name and marrying a rockstar. Bout everybody here is jealous of his accomplishments and his rewards.

    The US is sending in Marines to help with the riots. The President expects all 5 to be home by Christmas.

    What she said.

    I hadn't thought of that but that would really make a statement. I think Basso is the man to beat but that definately isn't stepping out on a limb by any means. He will probably be the pre-race favorite. But if a Discovery rider comes in and does win that would definately say alot about their strategy / training regimine. What ever happens it will definately be a very anticipated tour to say the least. Not necessarily from a whole world perspective (without Lance the mainstream coverage will be virtually non existent) but for fans of cycling I think it will be a great tour to watch.
