Lance Armstrong to make amazing comeback






Cycling legend Lance Armstrong is coming out of retirement to try to win an 8th TOUR DE FRANCE; Despite the drug suspicions that i guess will always hang over him, you can’t take away the fact that this guy is a true fighter a gun slinging anti hero like Clint Eastwood in THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY!
Drugs have been part of the tour since its inception, just read any of the old books on the riders and the great race, the drugs rightly or wrongly just add to the intrigue and mystery of this awesome race, how can you expect anyone to survive let alone race day after day through rain, burning sun incredible mountain stages and time trials that the average club rider would need days to recover from.
Read the book by PAUL KIMMAGE ‘ a rough ride’ to find out what riding the tour without drugs would be like!
I don’t feel that taking drugs in this race is cheating, this race is inhuman , the public want to see the gladiators fighting to the death and thats what they get, and LANCE is the altermate anti hero, the fastest draw in the wild west.

What are the odds that the cheating scumbag will fail an official drugs test this time round, rather than an unofficial one?

For the hell of me I can't figure out what's so inspiring about a cheater.

*ducks for cover*

Hi Thomas, I think most of the top cycle guy's are on high octane fuel, I mean do you really think its possible to race every day in the tour de france on water!
I have respect for Lance for the way he came back from his illness and the way he battled and won his races.
