    Nothing earth shattering though perhaps interesting for some.

    Yeah....REAL bike racing is personal. Very personal.

    And he won those races.

    And Floyd's Stage 17 ride in the '06 Tour is still one of the greatest I have ever seen.

    Was that really 8 years ago? I remember standing in the break area at work watching that.

    Just finished up Wheelmen yesterday so it's interesting to read this article today. This is the first piece in Lance's blueprint for getting back in the spotlight.

    Juliet Macur's book "Cycle of Lies" is also a good read.

    The end of "Slaying the Badger" last night was also pretty interesting...

    Drinking more and playing golf...
    Purgatory is hellish.
    I still like the book, The Secret Race. I read it in a weekend.
    Slogging through Big George's book now. Yawn.
