Do you think he would not realise he was offering them this opportunity on a plate?velorandy said:This is far more involved than a procedure gone wrong at a drug test, and it's really quite simple. This is all about the French not wanting Lance being the center of their universe for 3 weeks in July. They're determined to find a way too keep him out legally, they really couldn't bar Astana again.... and unfortunately Lance left a crack in the door for the French and they're running with it.
He is, after all a politically astute guy.
All the more reason to ask the question: Why would he risk the Tour de France, just to have a shower?
