    I don't like Lance because of his attitude, and being an Ullrich fan was disappointed to see Armstrong always knock him into 2nd place. And he's back! Yay!

    I think Neil Armstrong should come out of retirement, too.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I hate him too. I hope Contador will smash him. I've actually raced once with Contador (not in the same team of course), at an itnernational race, when he wasn't a pro. He's incredible.

    I don't like him. Does anyone know which team Armstrong will join?

    I'm hoping that Cadel Evans will win next year's tour, but the rest of the Silence-Lotto team is so crap on the tour, I doubt it'll happen. CSC was just unbelievable this year.

    As long as it still says "USA" under his name, I still want him to win. I just worry about him tarnishing his legacy if he comes back and doesn't win.

    Cadel Evans should really learn that you have to attack at least once - either in the climbs or in the crono - to win. With the comeback of Contador, I fear he doesn't have many chances.

    I believe Armstrong signed with a team already, but I don't remember which one. You'll have to look it up, as I don't want to see the guy's face right now.

    Cadel's definitely the most consistent rider. If he had a better team, he'd have more opportunities to attack. Just looking at the way that mountain stages played out - particularly on Alpe d'Huez - it's obvious that he wouldn't have had that 2min-plus deficit heading into the final time-trial if his team was stronger. He was completely isolated for most of those stages.

    On the other hand, Sastre had Frank Schleck, Andy Schleck, Jens Voigt etc. who were immense for him. That teamwork was what won Sastre the tour, not pure ability alone. Similarly, Contador had a really strong team with team Discovery when he won it in 2007. I will, however, admit that Contador is muuuuuch hotter than Cadel.

    That's why I'm curious about which team Armstrong will join. Wiki didn't say anything about it.

    Edit: Oh, he's joining Astana. That'll be interesting.
