Wish Lance stuck to Mountain Biking for a couple of years

I remember he finished 2nd place in Leadville. I think if he stuck with mountain biking he could of really generated a lot of attention to Mountain Biking don't you think, and it would of been nice to see some televised Mountain Bike Riding on Versus. I think mountain bike racing can be just as exciting if not even more exciting than road racing if you can incorporate some nice "jumps" along the course. Plus I don't think we would see any of the team drama, wheel sucking, domestiques, and political crap that we see in the tour.

He is riding to promote Livestrong. What better venue than the TdF? TdF has global viewership.

You don't think the broken wrist will take Levi out? The race is less than a month a way - is it not?
