Au revoir, Lance

Not sure if there is a causal relationship, but Lance Armstrong has been crashing on a regular basis—starting in the Tour of California—ever since the Landis accusations started coming out. His crashes in the Tour de France this year have finished his chances of a possible podium position. Did Lady Luck abandon him, as Paul Sherwin suggested? Was it age? Or did he simply lack the concentration required to avoid accidents? Who knows?

I do know that Lance Armstrong has been a great champion. We salute you, Lance. Good luck in the Hawaii Ironman Competition, if you decide to compete next year. Live strong, and the rest of us will try to do the same.
