Do not offend Don Armstrong!

Vaughters thinks Wiggins has further potential, even if it may not be realised in 2010. “The 2009 Tour route was suited to Brad, but 2010 is less so,” he said. “In 2009, the tactics worked in his favour and Astana were soft-pedalling a bit to not embarrass Lance [Armstrong]. And Brad is very good at a flat stage that has a big hill at the finish and we saw a lot of that in 2009.”

Lance won't forget.

JV's statement about Astana soft pedaling as not to embarrass Lance is actually fairly accurate. Certainly there is plenty to substantiate it.
Lance' threatening over reaction on twitter -- which ironically made the article known to millions of new readers by linking to it! --if anything makes that point (and plenty of others about his maturity, his impulsive nature and his bullying).
After all, you don't forget the truth!

I must be half moth or something. I hope it all lives up to the hype.
