How can you tell if it's Lance's bike?

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

Lance has one testicle, the other was removed due to cancer, they make fake balls called neuticles for dogs that have been "fixed" they are plastic.

Unfortunately, Lance is now sterile due to chemotherapy. All three of his kids were conceived through artificial insemination using sperm that Lance had preserved before his chemotherapy.

As opposed to a non-snobby French accent or a French accent which is inherently snobby? What are you implying?

"The French accent"? Have you any idea how many French accents there are? I don't think you'd find a tough-guy from Marseille or a Tunisian immigrant who works in a slaughterhouse to have a very snobby French accent. Mind you, it depends how insecure you are about your own cultural heritage.

At least if he hits the top tube, he has a 50/50 chance off avoiding the dreaded "Rack". Remember Stage ?15? when he popped out of his pedals...?

If Lance wins the 04 TdF, they need to change it to the "Tour de Lance"

Continuing...

Therefore, he must be cheating. Let's investigate and start all sorts of unsubstantiated accusations.

Nah, just trying to be funny, though some of the fun on a forum is writing things that people can take different ways - without going too far.
