Lance Pronounces Himself Ready for Tour de France 2010 - Good Luck Lance!

In lance's most recent tweet, he pronounced himself ready to take on the worlds best saying; “Last hard ride before the TdF,” he said on Twitter. “Test on the Col de la Madone. Record time? No. Close to it? Yes. I'm ready.”

I have long felt that Lance is the greatest athlete alive today. The physical demands made on the body in cycling are far greater over the long haul than golf, football or soccer. In cycling a rider can spend 4-6 hours a day sometimes repeatedly riding 130 miles a day for several successive days climbing in elevation in excess of 6000'.

While no one should consider Lance as the favorite for this years tour, a podium finish on July 25th would be an amazing feat for any athlete approaching the age of forty.

I'll be at this years tour on the last day in Paris and can only hope to see Lance at the finish.

Best of luck to Lance and Team Radio Shack
