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.

It only appears that way to people who are inferior to me.

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.

If you are going to ride an indoor trainer wearing that kit, I would suggest putting ferns in your workout space. It should make for a much cooler and oxygen rich environment...it will also preserve the integrity of your whale's penis.

You are right, the hatred that comes from Armstrong's groupies directed at Betsy, Lemond, Mike Anderson, Simeoni, Walsh, Bassons, Landis, etc. is sad.

Well if that's true, I don't see how anything posted herein supports them. However, Landis deserves no pardon.... Ripping off money from people to support a legal defense based on lies (this is a proved fact based on Landis' own admission, not speculation) should not be glossed over.

Uh...that is Livestrong.com...never to be confused with Livestrong.org. I know, I know, it isn't easy to differentiate between the non-profit site and THE FOR PROFIT SITE. In fact, the .com gets 10x the traffic. "Cancer awareness...buying Lance houses and jets because someone should make money off of it."

You almost had it. You went to the right site but failed to locate the info. You may also want to note that Armstrong gets no money from being on the board of directors of the charity.
Try here: http://www.livestrong.org/Who-We-Are/Our-Strength/Financial-Information

I wasn't really looking that hard. I got distracted by all of the for profit stuff... but I did find this already:

"Program Services:
Mission The Foundation continues to provide an expanded menu of mission-related programs. These include grants for cancer survivorship research; grants to community programs; delivery of cancer survivorship education, information, and referral and support services; and grants to survivorship centers at academic medical institutions. The Foundation is committed to ensuring that each and every individual affected by cancer has the opportunity to achieve the highest quality of life possible. To that end, the
Foundation works tirelessly to ensure that the issues affecting cancer survivorship are addressed by organizations and entities around the nation so that the needs of the approximately 12 million cancer survivors in the United States are met. The Mission Department funds a wide range of initiatives across the country in partnership with leading academic, community and advocacy organizations to ensure it is fulfilling its mission."

In case you are not aware, cancer suvivorship awareness is not the same as providing money for drug studies which was the suggestion by the chamois sniffer.

Then I found this:
"Research Program - The opportunity to support research that is patient-centered remains
a high priority of the Foundation. While the Foundation did not formally release an
original Request for Proposal and fund new research grants in 2009
, it continued to
monitor 60 active grants that are addressing key recommendations from the National
Action Plan on Cancer Survivorship and the reports of the Adolescent and Young Adult
Oncology Progress Review Group. These grants focus on areas of need in cancer
survivorship that will build on the body of knowledge and services focused on access to
quality survivor care and services, adolescent and young adult health-related quality of
life assessment and cost effectiveness of preventative survivorship interventions.

Additionally, the Foundation published a supplemental issue of the Journal of General
Internal Medicine that featured articles from the Foundation’s grantees."

Um, that is not research for cures for cancer.

It is nice looking, definitely the best of all the teams. I thought they should have done this in the first place. And on hot days, have all white with red logo.

Tired of being wrong yet? Here is some more:

"In 2009, the Foundation also convened a blue-ribbon panel to review the Foundation’s previous research grant portfolio and its impact and make recommendations for changes moving forward. The panel recommended the Foundation focus its efforts to transform cancer research to be patient-centered through the exchange of electronic health information."

"exchange of electronic health information" has nothing to do with research for treatment and cures.

I wonder who's picture was on most of it? The man does love a good head shot...

"Advertising Costs - Advertising costs are expensed as incurred. Advertising expense for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 was $4,195,187 and $2,379,929, respectively."

Please.

I think you can debate what Livestrong does and doesn't do, but after having some conversations with those who are LA fans first (primarily because of cancer) and cycling fans second, I can say I get it.

For many cancer victims, LA does seem to be a figure of hope. Sure it's easy to dismiss them and assume LA has cynically exploited them simply for profit. But for them, he did come back from cancer that probably should have killed him and went on to win 7 TDFs. I don't think it's hard to understand how someone like that could provide inspiration for someone searching for hope in what may be a hopeless situation.

I also refuse to believe that LA's battle with cancer has been completely forgotten by him and that the livestrong foundation simply exists to salve his conscience.

I dislike LA for several reasons. But none of them have to do with his work on behalf of those fighting cancer.

"exchange of electronic health information" has nothing to do with research for treatment and cures.

Oh so wrong, clinicians around the world rely on the LS database of information to help patients in treatments and cures as well as their clinical research.

Been there, it is a fact.
