Where is Lance?

Right after Lance retired he said that he will still be a part of the team, that Johan is his best freind, that he will ride in the team car to advise and support riders...Where is he...

He's putting his children first!

How dare you question his devotion to his children. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Ha! I remember those stupid comments. If anyone so much as innocently questioned why Lance hung up his bike after Le Tour, that unfortunate poster was repeatedly hit with the "he's putting his kids first, ya idiot!" comments.

I liked Lance. He was a heck of a tour rider. With the great tour we are watching who really cares where Lance is? My prediction is Lance will have no influence on the outcome on the tour this year.

I think he'll be there this weekend. He still is a part owner and the free TV time can't hurt when trying to get a new moneyman.

RAGBRAI starts on Sunday, and he's apparently riding the whole thing this year, so .. seems doubtful.

If Lance showed up, he would overshadow what has been a great Tour so far. Versus would be showing more pictures of him riding in the support cars than of the riders themselves.

All of the headlines both here and in Europe wouldn't be who won the stage or is wearing the jersey but the story of Lance showing up.

He's doing the right thing by staying away.

Lance wont over shadow this race except to the OLN commentators.

Taking long showers together is more likely.
