lance armstrong team astana training camp tour de france 2009 alberto contador levi leipheimerIn an AP interview, Lance Armstrong downplayed his chances of winning the Tour de France in July, and that he’s willing to work for the others if Team Astana boss Johan Bruyneel asks him to.

“I’m going to be very fair about it and respect (team boss Johan Bruyneel’s) orders and respect the team,” Armstrong said. “If that means supporting Alberto or Levi (Leipheimer) or whoever it is, I’ll respect them.”

I know Lance’s mission in un-retiring is to increase awareness for cancer, but when’s he going to start representing Team Astana’s colors?

Uh, if i hear his name one more time I will barf on my computer screen. Funny, what’s it been 3 months? and I am already tired of the press.
I am just glad Road Magazine didn’t drop to it’s knees and put him on the cover.
so how long will he ride in that kit? when will he get with the doping/ ooops I mean the Astana kits?

ok I am off my box.
