It says Christensen is out but I wouldn't be surprised if Riis is still looking for a spot in the sport. A bit more of an uphill climb without the bankroll but he's a scrapper and a force.

I love how at the end of the article it says he admitted in 2007 to having doped with EPO from '93-'98, including during his victory in the TdF, but that he has not been stripped of his title due to statute of limitations... pfft... so had Lance been a been more shrewd, he would have kept his trap shut until the time limitations expired and then come "clean"... for whatever reason pros seem to think that is necessary. Perhaps to sell a book al a Vaughters, Hamilton or others.

^^^ Lance was the best doper of all time, he has been recognized - with a Lifetime Ban.

Riis = just go away.
