Did read some very uncomplimentary things about LA from Le Equipe this
morning, ater Lance's departure. I was already sure I was never going
back to france, not doubly sure. Sounds like sout frog legs to
me...when waas the last true cycling star from France...2 DECADES!!

If I stayed away from the US every time Fox or the Morning Star or any
other piece of the USAn media said something bad, I wouldn't be getting
back till the heat death of the universe.

And wearing the emblem of a company that makes clutches for cars and
trucks, to boot.

I think it is interesting that even the Devil has sponsorship.

That is Didi Senft. he was arrested/fined in Switzerland for painting the

He makes a living out of this, but started as a Chiapucci "il diablo" fan I
believe.

Ahh, Peter. Why trust the press, even the French Press, to give us the
real deal? Fignon was the last great French hope, did not quite make
it to Hinault like proportions, however. I think the French press was
hoping that Voeckler would improve this year and give them someone to
write about and a hope for the future. But he was not able to give
them something to cheer about, and last year's effort seems to have
been accidental rather than a spark of brilliance.

The French folks, on the other hand, remain warm and considerate and
will treat you kindly, on average, even if you are from the US. They
will not hold the deeds of Lance, George, or any other individual
against you. I rode through Aquitaine and the Midi and Haute Pyrenees
in May, nothing but good things to say for the French people. They are
even considerate on the road!
