Lance Shmance: You’re Kidding, Right?

I am not an Armstrong fan, but Neal Rogers just broke this story and I think it’s noteworthy if not for its relevance to our interest (if we have any!) in the professional cycling world then for its egregious sensationalism.

Then again, what’s pro cycling without a healthy dose of high-drama? 

And, as a side note, the article casually mentions that Lancey-Pants might try his hand at cyclocross.  I have to say, from a respect-for-sheer-athleticism standpoint, that could be very cool to see.

Either way, you bet your ass I’ll have my eye on Vanity Fair next month.  (Vanity Fair!?  C’mon – this is classic!)

Rumormill, over and out.
