    Lance Not Banned From RAGBRAI

    He's certainly got some guts to come back and rub shoulders with some people who might not be so happy to see him: http://www.desmoinesregister.com/art...e&sf14601664=1

    Iím well aware my presence is not an easy topic, and so I encourage people if they want to give a high five, great. If you want to shoot me the bird, thatís OK, too.
    If this doesn't boost rider participation, nothing will.

    This is the perfect topic for the 41. There's nothing #41ier than #RAGBRAI .

    I thought RAGBRAI was over subscribed anyway? It does sound like a fun event to do. Ride a bit and eat lots.

    Not according to RAGBRAI


    RAGBRAI is a bicycle ride, not a race. It started in 1973 as a six-day ride across the state of Iowa by two Des Moines Register columnists who invited a few friends along. It is held the last full week in July.

    How dare he! Is LA even allowed to ride a bike with his electronic ankle handcuffs? This just isn't fair to the rest of us who competed for so many years....

    Take a look for yourself. It a massive event with riders pretty much starting when they like. I spoke to a person who rode it last year -- pretty much a free-for-all fun ride.

    By eat lots, do you mean drink scotch and lie?

    The same way half the TdF riders do this year. It's all in Froomes book, out in 2018.
