Lance Armstrong wins



This just made my day.



Seventh straight Tour de France victory!



Diane Pucin's travel-blog of the Tour de France 2005 (Los Angeles Times).

Anyone who thinks Mr. Armstrong had it easy should read It's Not About the Bike. It will make you think again.


Postscript:

As with anything, there will always be killjoys to try and ruin this happy occasion for everyone. Check out the following quote. As much as I think France should get off her moral high horse (e.g. the 1 million Muslims they killed in Algeria) with regards to USA's actions, such comments are untimely and unnecessary:

Looks like by sundown it will be Lance Armstrong SEVEN, Cheese eating surrender monkeys ZERO (for the last 7 races)

4:40 lead going into the last lap ceremonial leg through Paris down the Champs Elysee. Now tell the truth if any of you Frenchies are old enough to remember, which is worse, the Nazi convoys marching into Paris to claim the city or Lance Armstrong riding into Paris to claim his title. Before you answer, realize that the Germans did it only once and didn't stay nearly as long as Armstrong has. ;> )
