You are kidding, right?

You are not serious with this post, because if you are, you need to look a little more closely at this. Here's my take:

1. Lance has a sizable investment in the Discovery Team. If there is someone on the Tour Team contesting for the overall at the end, (RAGBRAI is the last week of the Tour) I would think Lance would want to be there. Agreement or no, especially if it's Hincapie, Lance would be on a plane to Paris.

2. Have you ever examined what happens at Lance's public appearances? He maintains a 50ft "bubble" around him at all times. No one gets closer without prior clearance. People are screened beforehand and all appearances are pre-planned before they ever happen, although they might appear to be spontaneous. People that ride with him are pre-selected long in advance. If you are a cancer survivor or advocate for research and developement into cures for cancer, welcome aboard! If you are a typical, beer swilling, pork chop eating, bead wearing RAGBRAI'er you have a better chance of seeing Lance on the evening news reports than you do on RAGBRAI.

Lastly: Lance is a dude on a bike. Yes, he won seven Tours in a row, but he's still just a dude on a bike. Lance hysteria has me nauseated already. I can only imagine it'll get worse as we approach RAGBRAI this July. So, I'm maybe a bit cynical about the whole thing, but Lance eating pork chops and riding with beaded recumbent riders in an unrehearsed atmousphere? Never happen! :rolleyes:

You'll see the post read "any takers", meaning I'm sure nobody will see him, he won't stop for pie or chops and he won't ride with the masses like a regular dude. So your opinions are pretty much exactly what I was thinking also.
