Lance Armstrong has dodged another bullet and will compete on Saturday in his last Tour de France. Regardless of what has been said or written about him, he is still a great champion and I want him to do well, though I very much doubt he will equal last year’s performance and stand on the podium at the end of the Tour. Armstrong is a very smart man with a very special body, capable of willing himself to do almost anything, but his time has passed. One hopes that his Tour will end in dignity and that the era of cycling which he represents will end with him.
