I raced for the USCF (United States Cycling Federation) for years, albiet nowhere near Lance's level, but I can understand the man's mentality and physical prowess. Very difficult sport to participate in, even more to be successful.

However, it ain't over 'till it's over, he has a strong challenger pushing him, but that's what's going to make him even better.

Audacity...I pretty much stuck to the northeast and mid-Atlantic races. Never did Killington, but there was some stage races in Mass I participated in. Mostly one day road races and criteriems. Fun times, I loved the anticipation at the beginning of a race, only to have all the butterfly's dissapear once you tightened up your straps (remember straps? I guess that dates me )

I got pics, but no scanner. But the memories are what I like the best...geez, I was in great shape back then It was amazing how fast we could blast up the hills with those tiny gears in the back!!! I couldn't push those gears downhill these days LOL Seems like you were a cat 1 or 2?
