    You guys need to talk Lance Armstrong out of retirement. I was a little bit interested when he was competing.
    Be Not Afraid.

    Yep, Lance was the Man. And before him, Greg Lemond. I don't see another American of that caliber right now.

    We have an excellent developmental cycling program in this country. It's kinda like soccer, talented individuals but the interest doesn't compare with the big sports.
