Now TEAM USA has literally no chance of medalling in Athens - at least
in the road events. The people at USAC must be crying because LA was
really their only hope for a medal in Athens in the TT.

There goes hundreds of thousands of dollars in USOC funding....

Hamilton is not the TT rider that LANCE is, but he is a definite
contender. He took 5th and 2nd in the Tour TTs last year. He beat
LANCE at Nantes.

Speaking of (iv), Levi finished in the top five in the 2.HC ranked Vuelta a
Pais Vasco this year.

Well that was a silly mistake on my part. I quickly scanned
through the calendar and picked up on Julich and Hamilton
at the top but missed Levi in 5th.

So the US sends another stage racer to Athens. There is still
hope for Freddy though. All those guys have to make it to
Paris without falling and breaking something. That's hardly a
lock since each of them knows what it is like to fall and
break something in the Tour.

Well, that answers my question from a few weeks ago: Is LANCE even going
to ride the Olympics? This is, to me, a good turn of events as it gets the
guy most likely to have success (at whatever level) on the Athens course.

So far, so good, so what?

I thought this post woul;d be about Levi leaving Rabobank and
going to Discovery Channel for 2005.

Levi for the Giro? Probably.
