I Need A Haircut

Its all over the news, Lance Armstrong is going to ride in one more Tour. Frankly I am surprised he is going to ride again. I thought he was going to take a tour off and race in other races that he has missed out in the past 6 years.

You know he is probably thinking that there is more to life than racing and he just wants to have fun this year. In my opinion he is disillusioned! He thinks it will be fun but in fact he will strangely be feeling more failure because as everyone gets into the racing mode he will feel that he too should be there, but by that time it will be too late. The rest of the Tour he will struggle to put on a smiley face. In the end he will lie to himself and the press that he is happy with his career and that he is excited to be leaving it to explore the rest of life.

Lance there is no more life. What it is to other people will not feel the same to you. You have beaten cancer and won the Tour more time than any other human. There is nothing better than that. Keep racing man, it is what you are. Your bike is your wings and if you have them clipped to experience life in the cage … well, that is just something that some have regretted the rest of their life.

But then again I do not believe he should go on winning the Tour. It would be so cool for him to go to the Tour to help the next big racer win. What if he goes to bat for Tyler? The Tour in fact needs to find its own identity again or it will collapse in the future. Its time for more drama, more heroes, more suspense, and more Phil Liggett.
