I know George HIncapie is going to report on the race on location but on the Wedu podcast Lance Armstrong says he'd be there but he is taking his kids skiing or golfing or something on spring break. Isn't he not allowed to be involved with racing - isn't that what a lifetime ban means?

Thnaks.

The UCI and USADA aren't the Gestapo with the juice to completely smother him from the periphery. Blabbing on a podcast, whether or not you're blabbing in the general vicinity of the race, isn't exactly being involved with racing in any way they can regulate.

Every now and then I hear a clip of some of his stuff. He's definitely on the outside looking in. I'm not taking a stance on his past there, just his present. Caveats aside, he dominated the sport for a decade. But that was then and this is now. I don't see his connectedness and relevance to current racing coverage. There are lots of other commentators available.

Isn't Lance getting involved with mountain biking or gravel or something grassroots away from usada and the like? I listened to him once but it didn't quite jibe. Maybe I'll give him a second try.
