The Lance Saga.

As you may, or may not, already know, Lance Armstrong is facing a lifetime ban from the USADA.  I’m not following all the details too closely, because I’m not big on the politics of pro cycling.  Pro cyclists are some of the best athletes in world, generating more watts more consistently than any of us will ever produce.  If that in itself isn’t inspiring and humbling enough for you, then you may be riding for the wrong reasons.  Appreciate the sport for what it is, respect the athletes that’ll snap your legs off any day of the year, and ride because you want to.

If you’re so inclined to dive deeper into the politics, I’ve found the Inner Ring post to be most informative.  Photo from Cycling News.
