    Pretty soon the Jan will be being coming the back to being riding his bike....after his suspension is up...which might be after Lance retires again.

    I thought the reason Beloki wasn't racing anymore was because of injuries suffered in the 2003 Tour.....I thought I read that he had trouble returning to top form. Shows what I know. Is the old guard unimpressed with the young guys? Or are they all having a mid-life crisis?

    Mid-life crisis I bet. Last night I talked to a local here in Bend, Marcel Russenberger, who raced the Tour back in the 80's and he was basically flabergasted for all the reasons that we've discussed in the Lance threads. He thinks it's a bad idea.

    She didn't use to, but I haven't seen her, or heard anything about her, in years.

    He never did come back to his top form, but he says that in the article, that he could be a good helper for a team captain.

    The Jan has no longer the want to be crushing of souls of the week, the Jan instead now is liking the playing with kittens and the bunnys. The Jan will love them and pet then and the Jan will name them George.

    The jan does the naming, then he does the crushing of their bunny souls with massive thighs that he is still having just incase.

    Because sometime the Jan has to show the bunnies that they are just the bunnies and he is still being the Jan, who is being stronger than the bunnies.

    The Jan is now being the Kaiser of the bunnies, the bunnies who will be working in the Kaiser's army. Kaiser Jan has recruited the bunnies to be aiming their bodies at the tire of the Lance, who is thinking he will ride the tires on his bike in the tour de france again, thinking he will try and shame the Jan. But the Jan will not be being the shamed again. Lance will be the fail when the bunnies of the Jan lodge themselves in his carbon fork and the lance will be learning to fly like the birds, who also fear the Jan.

    Interesting letter on cyclingnews.com arguing that Lance should ride for a team other than Astana for his comeback. I don't see it happening - if indeed he does come back and race, I expect it will be with Johan and the rest - but it would be great to see him racing AGAINST Contador and Levi rather than force all three to figure out who the leader is as the race goes on.

    On the other hand, the notion of Lance being Alberto's bitch (carrying bottles, etc.) is pretty amusing.

    If Lance races on Astana, there won't be any figuring out who the leader is.....he is the boss

    That's part of my point - if he races with Astana, he probably WILL be the boss and in the process he'll essentially remove two of the best riders from the competition (again). I'd rather see them race against each other. Levi and Contador working together against Lance? Slim chance, but I'd love to see it.
