    This was posted on a cycling forum by "Dog" and I thought it was uplifting enough!

    I sent the story to my wife and here is her reply:
    "Wow. That guy continues to be a champion in so many ways. I’m so glad he hasn’t sunk to the “jerk status” of so many athletes of his caliber. He’s always been a hero to me, and he continues to be."

    Thanks for the update Bill, I really hope cycling continues to grow here in the US, I'd love to see more stage races and multiday events all over the country, the SF Grand Prix went over pretty well over there, there's no reason we can't start up another "Tour duPont" or something over here.
    The USPS cycling squad is doing well as a team in the Vuelta, they're too far down in the team competition to ibanesto.com but they have 3 riders in the top ten and they have a realistic shot of having 2 riders finish in 3rd and 4th depending on how the last few days pan out. (the Vuelta a Espana ends this Sunday in a time trial).
    I've got a century to ride this week and another one next week, in addition to some MTBing I'd like to do this weekend, it's going to be one big week of riding.
    Then in a few weeks I've got the Mountain Man biathlon around halloween, should think of a costume to do it in, it's always fun trying to MTB in costumes...

    Lance again proves he is a role model for people of all ages.
