I'm all for quitting-while-your-ahead. When he retired he was on top of the world, and that's how we remember him - I think he should keep it that way.

He should stay away, although I'm sure the sport of cycling could use the publicity. Lance didn't get caught for drugs and should be grateful for that....why come back and jeopardize? Actually when I think about it, if he where to come back that would make me question my thoughts on whether he was dirty or not. If he did use drugs it would crazy to come back. I think he should relax and run a couple more marathons.

It says he will post his internally tested bloodwork online. Does it say something about my "jadedness" that I don't trust "internal testing?" And what is he riding for? Because he's trying to prove his cleanliness? Or just because he misses it? Is he riding for the win? Or maybe he's just inspired by Brett Favre . . .

I am glad to see he is going for it again. I am not a big cycling fan but when Lance was riding it was definitely worth watching. Who cares about what everyone else is going to think of him if he loses or if they think he is on drugs. If he still wants to ride and thinks he can still win, then I say go for it before its too late and your body wouldn't give you a second chance.

i agree with you katrina, he should be more than satisfied with what he's already accomplished.. let someone else have the glory of winning.. but hats off to him for trying yet another year.
