Livestrong has not given money to research for years, they are all about "Awareness"

Nike Awareness, Oakley Awareness, Trek Awareness.

Race Radio, your post is very interesting! IF you have proof of this claim contact the guy who is investigating the claims Floyd Landis made about Armstrong. He will want to know about this fraud. The US tax forms that Livestrong posted on their website show grants given to research in 2009. Based on your post they must have cheated on their taxes.

The far end of what spectrum? Is Lance under investigation for fraud? Yes. Is there strong evidence he doped? Yes. Did he chase down Simeoni in one of the most disgusting displays of Omerta ever witnessed on live television? Yes.

Just because you can't accept reality doesn't make it any less real.
Do you have a link to footage of this incident? I would like to see it for myself.:)

Don't forget about the Team Classification.

Do you notice that the ASO presents awards in Order of Importance?

Stage Winner
Green Jersey
Poka Dot Jersey
White Jersey
Yellow Jersey
GC Podium
Team Classification.

it's last because most of the TV channels dont show it, they go to advertisment breaks or studio discussion or the next program. They did that here in Italy:D

Are you saying this race has NOT been about Lance?

Lance attracted the biggest crowds and biggest applause.
Signed the most autographs.

Floyd talked about Lance. LeMond talked about Lance.
The forum(s) obsessed over Lance, haters and fanboys and mods alike.

Lance will not start. Lance will not finish.
WSJ. USA Today. L'Equipe. Nightline TV.

This race HAS been about Lance lol.

Of course, the race will be remembered for Alberto attacking Andy in Yellow when "The Mechanical" happened.

And "The Tiff" and 'The Make-Up".
Hugs, Winks, and Strokes on the Cheeks.

So what you're saying is that he is bigger than the race? You really need to come up for air.

Don't listen to Lemond and his minions whose lives are dedicated to destroying Lance and Contador with false doping allegations.

Has someone dedicated their life to destroying your brain or were you born ***?

Or are you just on a wind up?

I hope the Grand Jury investigation shuts idiots like you up. I doubt it will.

Source please. If you don't post it, it never happened.

I mean, it doesn't appear to be a focus: http://www.livestrong.org/What-We-Do/Our-Actions/Programs-Partnerships

Gotta say one thing though; seeing an (almost) entire team sitting in the road-side doing needlework is probably not something we'll see again anytime soon...

Maybe the real reason Armstrong didn't join the handywork club is because he doesn't know how to...:p

No, he was too busy feigning outrage at the audacity of the race officials in insisting that they put on their UCI approved jerseys. He drew the media focus to himself for as long as he could, eventually having one of his many "slaves" pin the number on for his "highness" and then to extend it further had it done again to straighten the numbers out. If this were a sincere
effort on their part they would have made the most of their own podium time and worn the kit then. I'm sure their choice of methods met their purpose of maximum exposure but it was lacking of class and distracted from their ultimate cause and disrespectful of the Tour itself, an event that is at the foundation of his own success.

Very Disrespectful

I really like the final stage. It's always the same. Riders muck around for the cameras, lots of shots of the winners, champagne, everybody looking pretty happy, chatting away: a convivial and friendly atmosphere. Followed by a huge sprint for the finish.:p It's also when the cameras pan through the peloton and seemingly tries to give everybody a bit of face time for TV. We're not just shown GC riders and those high up in the classifications, or even just the riders who are allowed to get into breakaways, but everybody else. The ones who don't get a lot of time on TV but rode just as far and probably did a fair few k's of it with several drinks on board for someone more important in the team pecking order than them. They deserve their spot in the sun on the last day.

Armstrong's surliness not only put a bit of a sour note on proceedings and was disrespectful to the winners and the race organisers, but also robbed time away from all those other riders who finished who we don't get to see much. Instead of more face time with them waving at the cameras and saying hello, we get pictures of LA arguing, LA looking mad, LA holding up proceedings while forcing everybody else to wait, LA changing, LA having his number fixed, LA, LA, L bloody A ... I am sick of him.

Roll on the post-Lance era. Hooray.:)

It was almost as much of an embarrassment as was his riding.

Versus is owned by Comcast.

Contador didn't "steal" the Tour from Schleck. You can ask "what if?", or say Schleck was stronger in the mountains, and I would agree. But to claim Contador stole the Tour from Andy is absurd.

I'd have to even disagree there. Schleck only gained time in the mountains on Contador when Contador made the mistake of answering every initial attack before Schleck launched his on (was it the finish at Avoriaz?). With that last km or so at 2% I wouldn't really call that a real showof superiority.
Now Contador did regain that 10 seconds on the Mende stage with an attack that Schleck had no answer for. At best for Schleck I'd call it even at worst for Schleck I'd still give the edge to Contador.

So you're denying that the Simeoni incident actually happened or that you never saw it?

How are you linking Armstrong and Contador in the same sentence?

Real Deal = BPC

You sir, are one of the most disagreeable people who has ever produced documents at a keyboard. Your posts toward anyone who disagrees with your all consuming hatred of LA are rude, arrogant, and often beyond what is stated as the rules of this forum. I was surprised they were not removed until I discovered that "Alpe d'Huez" is one of the moderators. You also appear to believe that most of the people who object to your ranting are all the same person. You continually accused me of being BPC when I posted a few months ago. I don't visit this forum often as I do not enjoy spending time in the sewer, but when I occasionally visit and take issue with some of the haters, I can assure you and the rest of them that I have nothing to do with anyone else. If you are reasonably computer literate you can discover I am posting from France, where I have spent the summer on my bike.

That kit is definitely the sickest looking kit in the tour. Best looking kit in the tour, great way to support a good cause, and a great way live strong. Cheers.

My only problem is that it is all black, and that might absorb heat? I'd only wear it on a cool day.
