- French sports daily L'Equipe Saturday is reporting that Lance Armstrong will arrive in France Monday to begin preparing for the Tour de France (July 3-25). While Armstrong was not expected to compete in the Dauphiné Libéré (June 6-13), L'Equipe reports that a source tells them the Tour de Suisse (June 12-20) is also unlikely. Armstrong is expected to begin training in and around his European base at Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat near Nice.
Murray said:I don't think he will ride the Tour. I like him, and I'd like to see him do well, but to me, this year, he looks old and tired.
He's not hungry enough, not motivated enough, and he just doesn't have his old legs.
Time to retire again.
I dont know...Lance will negotiate this.Cerberus said:According to the Times 2 other riders are considering cooperation, if that happens you can stick a fork in LA.
LOOKFOOL said:He's finished..The controversy is too much.. Did you hear his interviews during the TOC pre-Landis?..his demeanor?..He knew what was coming and has been cowering behind it..The spark is gone..France is gonna fry him..It was all a matter of time..

I mean c'mon, this is the guy that helped buy testing equipment to bust the dopers.
Will Lance name names?
"You want a doper?"
