    I had no idea that Lance raced mountain bikes, too!! I can't believe he's coming out of retirement to do the Tour again.. What an amazing guy!

    Nice pics, mainly because they are pics you can't just go take-they are chance shots.

    Very cool indeed to be so close to Lance Armstrong! (Lovely night shot of the camping under the stars, although the tilt isn't particularly to my taste).

    There's a thread where one can post pics of 'famous people'. I'd say Lance qualifies for sure. Check it out here

    Hes riding Gary Fisher? :shock: Ut oh did Trek loose him? hmm...

    Nice pics tho. Im excited that Lance is coming back to the Tour. He was right that the Tour was slower paced the past few years, and I dont think hes doing it so much to win, but to put LIVESTRONG out there more and help his awesome charity :)

    Thanks! Looking forward to watching and cheering on Lance again!

    Gary Fisher is actually owned by Trek so technically he's riding a Trek!

    His other bike is a FS Trek Fuel, he actually showed up the friday before to pre-ride the course and decide which bike he was going to race on.....tried out both before going with the hardtail.

    I think he raced the Trek at Leadville though

    Boy this reminds me of going to central park to see a bike race and I got a pretty good shot for me at the time of Greg Lemond. He was racing with the rainbow jersy, I think it was because he had won the world championship that year I think.. Ill find it and scan it tonight. good shots by the way.
