Lance Rides Again

Lance Armstrong is 37 years old, he hasn’t ridden in a race in almost 4 years, and he is currently in 3rd place in the Tour de France. By any measure, that’s an incredible thing.

And yet, he became such a dominant presence in that race that it kind of feels like anything less than a win will be a complete failure. What a strange thing that must be, to race not against the other riders, but against the echos of your former glory.
