Bobke was wearing Lance's "LIVESTRONG" wrist band!

Anyone else notice the yellow "LIVESTRONG" wrist band on Bob Rolls wrist during the "Road to the Tour" show? Though it was kind of cool of him showing his support.

I saw it as well.

By the way, what's with Bob's Giro commercial - saying Binda had 60 Giro stage wins? I thought it was 41.

Its crazy how many people are wearing the yellow bands. I first started seeing them a month ago up at CSE when Bill Stapleton was wearing one. And then i saw Lance wearing one and now BAM! everyone has one!...lol people ask me all the time what it means.

I noticed Bob Roll was wearing one. I think so was Chris Carmichael. I have mine but have yet to see anyone in (at least in New York) wearing one. Of course people ask me what it is for also. Great product and great idea.

What I'm doing is buying $10 worth and then selling each of them to people for a dollar. And then using that money to go back buy 10 more, and then 10 more, etc.. I suggest you guys give it a try. It's an easy way to buy a lot of them if you just don't have the cash to buy 100 (or 1200).

Lance Armstrong Foundation said you CANNOT resell them at a higher price.

I'm buying 10 today. Much of the LAF money goes to research done by my professors, so I'm supporting them too.

Read what I said, The store is selling them for $1. I paid $5 for 2, my choice. Its a donation

I got my 10 and I give them out to friends.
The very first thing I saw when I got to the TREK 100 this past Sat was someone wearing a bracelet in the car next to me as I got out.
Cool!

I think Iban Mayo wore the yellow wristband on the last stage of the Dauphine-Libere. So Lance even managed to persuade his rivals to buy them.

I was in Portland Or last month and there was a stall at the airport. I decided to splash out and bought a T shirt - I didn't fancy the wristband idea. The fund-raising seemed to be working well though. Good stuff!

I think they all have one. Bobke actually got his from "The Man" himself. Told a little story about it the other day. Didn't even have to cough up $1 (though he said he was prepared to)

Also, when you buy from the LAF, you get little "WearYellow" postcards you can distribute...

Yep, I have 10 postcards as well. That is the nice thing about getting them from the LAF.
