That media conference back in 2009 was a doozy.... some more choice bites here:
ON HIS CANCER MISSION
"Studying the international burden of this disease, we realised there’s a place for the LiveStrong message around the world. Those two things came together. Johan was receptive to the idea. I came here as a volunteer. I am racing and training every day for free. It’s a global initiative, if I am second, third or eighth or 18th in the Tour that’s okay with me as long as the message gets out there."
...and as long as expensed items include: Gulfstream, hotels, hookers, blow.
