Yupper, the Golden boy hisself was in my area yesterday and today...... just knowing he was around I rode a bit faster today.

A special note to Denver...... he stopped for a piece of pie yesterday. (it was cherry, I believe, without ice cream)

Lance said earlier that he had always wanted to do the Iowa tour, but his racing schedule didin't allow it. I think it is cool for him to show up.

He's an interesting and "different kind of cat."

You are quite right.... I need to be much more specific. I do know 2 Lance's.... one is Lance Bissel, he is a mechanic at the local chevy dealer..... the other Lance I know of is Lance Armstrong. This is the Lance I was refering to.... He won some bike races, so he's kind of famous...... among bikes. I suppose Lance Bissel is famous among Chevy owners..... do you own a chevy?

It's like when I seek an article that "Armstrong wins race"
Most often they mean supergirl Kristin Armstrong!
