Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

SC - How does it feel to kick so much french butt?
LA - It feels pretty good

I remember an articel where Michael Richards -- the guy who played Kramer -- got all pissed because Klein (Cannondale?) gave Jerry Seinfeld a free bike. Richards was a big rider.

He seemed pretty relaxed. The pot shot about there not being any good french riders was a bit mean, but the rest was pretty light hearted. I liked when SC said he should get a foam hand with 835 fingers to hold up to represent LA's place in the NY marathon.

I actually thought that SC was significantly nicer, and more serious than he is with many of his guests. He even seemed concerned when LA was talking about his involvement with the cancer board and grateful for the work that he (LA) was doing. I was thoroughly shocked and impressed!

All in all, very good interview, with both parties in good form. Many good laughs!

I seriously think this is because Lance is just a scary scary man. He puts off this huge hardass persona. When Lance did Daily Show I was afraid for John, especially when Lance started making comments like "Does this ever get serious." without cracking a smile. Although I will agree that he seemed more lighthearted for Colbert. But really, who just runs a sub 3 hour marathon while balancing an egg?

I would think it is because generally when SC has someone on it is either a political figure or someone wiht a political message in a book or whatever and SC is trying to hammer them on it (even if it is a satire). On the other hand Lance was on (well I assume I must wait until 8:30 to watch) for no polotical purpose and other than riding bike with Bush (who in SC's satire world is either great or the greatest) hasn't really ever made his polotical stance known widely like many actors and musicians do.

Now add to that, if SC is a fan (I dont' know but this isn't the first time someone has asked if he is a cyclist) you can see why the interview wouldn't be like many of his others.

I got the feeling that Lance was going to follow up the no good French riders comment, probably with some humorous modifier, but the SC spiel kinda got rolling and he couldn't get it in?

plus the not very small fact that cancer isn't great material for satire.

I agree that cancer isn't much good for satire, but the great SC made it so earlier in the very same show, regarding the HPV vaccine movement going on in TX. When I heard that, I began to get a little nervous about how the rest of the show. I would have entirely avoided the subject of cancer prior to the interview, if it was me, but SC even said something to the effect of "we need to teach teens that sex gives you cancer."

I guess the reason I watch, though, is because of SC's aversion to treading lightly.

"Lance is just a scary scary man."

Really?

I'm not taking anything away from the guy but other than figure skating/ice dancing what male sport's repeat champion is less scary?

There are political reasons to his relationship with Bush. *cough* Cancer foundation *cough* etc.
