HaHa! No one makes a small fortune at a single shop. Definitely a labor of love because there's **lots** of labor and risk for very little return. A hobby at best for wonder lance.

Armstrong's on the board of usacdf. You guys have any dirt on that operation?

Lots of people make a small fortune owning a bike shop. Here's how. First, start off with a large fortune. Next, the small fortune just comes naturally from there.:D

I do find the Zipp tie in interesting. Since prior years at the TDF if LA was not on the base Bontrager wheels he was usually riding HED 3's.

You have to wonder why more people in the cycling biz aren't publicly ****ed off at the guy. Ownership in SRAM/Zipp and a wall full of HED wheels on the wall of the bike shop. That's just got to make business partners feel ... um ... special. Whatever happened to playing for the home team...? Oh that's right, the home team is LA.

if he gets 'done' for fraud/doping/dealing PEDs or whatever it'll be interesting to see how many stay on this list, my guess is most will stay on the list.:(

Something his buddy Stephanie might like...

Lewis Cellars Lance Armstrong Cuvee 7 wine - $275-300. Profits going to Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Livestrong Wine...not sure if it's still being produced, but there might be some out there.
Given his trailer-trash upbringing, this stuff probably tastes like a nice blend of Mad Dog and Thunderbird.

To be clear on this - these are venues and artists, not associated with LA, they are only venues as part of the ACL Festival which is run by C3.


But - it reminds me that the 'Six Lounge' needs to be added to Lance's list.
