TOUR DE FRANCE

TransRockies Tour of Alberta

On Sunday September 8th I was at Seaman Stadium, Okotoks, with my buddies Kevin and Roy. We were there to participate in... the TransRockies Tour of Alberta. This was an opportunity for recreational riders to cycle some of the same terrain that the professional teams would be covering on the 6th stage of the Tour of Alberta. It was also my seventh event in TransRockies Quest 888. If I could complete the 130 km course then I would achieve 751 kms towards my target of 888 kms.

The Art Of the TV Confessional

Is this Oprah interview with Lance Armstrong a chance for the disgraced cyclist to publicly recognize his numerous wrongs, and seek forgiveness from his fans, or is it just another narcissistic attempt from someone who is backed in a corner trying to shift gears in the hopes rebooting his career?

If You Can't Prove Armstrong Doped, How Can You Convict Him?

It's fair enough to suspect Lance Armstrong of doping, and since 1999 he'd been put through the hoops time and time again. Yet, nothing. Other cyclists tested positive -- not Armstrong. I haven't a clue if Armstrong was, or was not, using banned substances. All I know is that it has never been proven. If you can't prove something, you can't convict him.

Lance Armstrong, Champion Doper?

If you work at ESPN, CBS, The Huffington Post, TSN, Sportsnet, FOX Sports, CBC, BCC, Some French Television Station Whose Sole Goal in Life is to Tarnish American Superstars, Al-Jazeera, or any other credible mainstream news organization, your goal is not to speculate over whether Lance Armstrong is guilty or not. It's to report the facts.

The USADA Must be High if They Think Armstrong is on Drugs

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency is seeking to strip Lance Armstrong of his cycling awards, and ban him from triathlon competitions on the grounds that the world's greatest cyclist has been taking performance-enhancing drugs. Only problem is they don't have a single shred of proof, and Armstrong has been tested 500 times. So on what basis can they possibly accuse him of cheating?
