Four Months, then it is over

Lance Armstrong says he will retire after the TdF this year.

I think this is a good thing for cycling, and for Lance. Lance will continue with the Discovery team in a non-rider role, will be able to spend more time with his family, and he will continue his efforts in the fight against cancer. Cycling gets superior drama for this TdF, and will also gain room for the next generation of excellent cyclists.

Update: In another blow for US Cycling, Tyler Hamilton was suspended for two years on his blood transfusion charges. The case is sure to be brought to a higher court.
