Re: Any Tour de France addicts out there
Big respect to Hamilton for carrying on. however the moment they hit some climbs he'll quit. A terrible shame because he was one of a small number of riders that could have given the fat mouth Texan a run for his money. Notice how the 'tiffosi' have not taken to Lance at all. I wonder why. He mixes with some iffy guys, Dr Ferrari being one, so one has to ask yourself how come he has been so much better than the rest. No doubt a fantasic athlete, iron (and other things? LOL) in his veins, hard as nails, but....................
BTW rididing with a broken collarbone is not without predcedent. Hardman of the peloton Sean Kelly attempted to ride through the pain in the mountains some years back. Just too much for him, or anyone. *Real tragedy.
Guy I always rated was Andy Hampsten, a true star and I believe he always rode 'clean'. Never forget his fantastic victory up to Alpe d'Huez in the arly nineties. An American athlete to be very proud of. Likewise LeMond.
