    On my recent roadtrip I saw a pickup with a sticker on it that simply said "Boycott France" I couldn't agree more.

    Hmm, testing EPO testing methods, would stand to reason there would be EPO present in the lab, the idea of cross contamination is obviouslly crazy to them. Why would they just happen to pick blood samples from Lance Armstrong to perfect something? Sounds like experimentation, which could mean flawed results, and targeting results.

    Cant face defeat...

    France is just a sore loser!..looking for excuses. :surepal: .FACE IT--YOU LOST!!-- 7 TIMES!! :D :haha:

    As a testicular cancer survivor myself,all I can say is GO LANCE!...beats me how he can even SIT on a bike,nevermind pedal it for miles and beat everyone else!(or how he managed to snag Sheryl Crow either! :confused: )..I only lost 1 of mine,and that was 4 years ago,and I still have severe pain down there at times..don't think riding a bike would feel too pleasant!..

    On the other hand,if I WAS on a bike,and I saw the doctor behind me with a scalpel,thats ALL I'd need to win the race! :yikes: :yikes: :eek1: :shocked: :eek: :crazy:

    Props to what Lance has done... but I think he's a jerk. Read his book? Basically "LANCE ARMSTRONG (YEA... TAHT'S ME!) OWNS ALL!!! Not to mention bailing on his wife that went through hell with him for Crow... I personally think he's a piece of $h!t... but like I said, props to his accomplishments... :crazy:

    Yeah, he's a dedicated guy but it seems that he has the personality of a douche, I've watched a couple of specials on him and he owes most of what he's accomplished to a freakish set of genes that cause him to be out of this world athletic, doesn't make me detest certain foreigners any less though.

    Also helps if (like him) you've got the mental ability to block out EVERYTHING but the prize at the end of the road, too.

    Whether he is an a$$ or not, the French press sucks. Let it go. Even if he used EPO in 1999 (which I highly doubt), he won the next six while being the most tested athelete on the planet.

    No doubt - this guy has been tested a billion times in the last 6 years and they still give him sh@# - the French just can't come to the realization the the only thing they produce that is remotely worth a sh@@# is wine
