"At last this race is going to be open again," said Leblanc. "It was tiresome to see the same scenario repeat itself every summer."


Man, how RUDE is this? Yeah, anyone who ever suggested IGNORING Miguel Indurain, Eddy Merckx or Bernard Hinault would be CRUCIFIED. What's the difference between those three champions and Lance Armstrong? Those three champions were European. Way to go with the world-view, Leblanc.

Thank you, Lance Armstrong, for showing the world what a true sporting champion looks like.

Your name can sit comfortably among other such sports notables as Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Hank Aaron, Wayne Gretzky and other truly legendary sports figures. As they have, you have done something that will probably never be equaled, you've raised to level required to be a champion to an almost unfathomable height, and you've captivated the whole world while doing it. Vive La Tour. Vive Lance. Merci Beaucoup, et Bon Sante.
