Looks like a big guy, bob roll maybe?

That's about cool as hell. Did you ride by him saying, "last one to the top is a rotten egg"?schmed said:Yep - THAT Lance.
Finishing up Ride the Rockies on Friday. Just coming out of Aspen and two dudes pass us on the sidewalk. One dude all in black and yellow wearing Livestrong shorts. Could it be? Yep, Mr. Armstrong himself.
We rode behind him for 10 miles. What a day! :thumbsup:
Bonus points if you know who the guy on the left is.....
That's pretty awesome :thumbsup:schmed said:On a few downhill/uphill transitions, he stood to pedal and we found ourselves 100 yards behind in a blink of an eye.
I'm with you.joelalamo45 said:I'm as far as you can get from a roadie, but that's freakin awesome! Lance is a hero...
Its called an appearance fee and it pays really well. If promoters have the cash they can use it to bring big names in. Win/win situation.honkinunit said:What the hell Armstrong was doing there right before the Tour de France is a mystery.
I hadn't thought of an appearance fee. Nevada City isn't that big of a race anymore, so I wonder how much they would be able to come up with.69erSycip said:Its called an appearance fee and it pays really well. If promoters have the cash they can use it to bring big names in. Win/win situation.
He looks to be in great shape but I'll wager that Armstrong is not at the Tour to win it. He is there to be an ultra-domestique. He is going to punish people with some mean tempos, but he won't attack his own teammates.
