The end of the tour for Lance today.

It was a bittersweet and sad day for me to watch the greatest Tour de France champion ever finish amongst the vanquished in this first truly tough mountain stage today. The odds finally caught up to him in a hurry and his inability to avoid silly snags and crashes, and being 38 years old… all rolled into one horrendous day/week that has been this Tour for him. I was sad for him, but still remember how many more racers he did this to over the years and realize that it’s just racing and that’s the way it is. I am still flying the flag for Levi now, he is in fine shape after today and I think Lance will be able to help him to a podium, and who knows, a win?
