Lance’s Chances: Leadville looking better all the time

In Bicycle Racing, Lance's Chances, Mountain Biking on August 9, 2009 at 7:48 am

Lance Armstrong is now King of Colorado, sending a message to Dave Wiens re Saturday’s Leadville 100 joust.

Lance is looking real strong, dusting the field at the Colorado state mountain bike championships in Snowmass. Wiens did not compete.

There’s some simmering resentment that Lance, who has a house in Aspen but is from Austin of course, was allowed to compete. But the rules said yes, and why not? He brings a lot of attention and commercial weight to anything he does, and both are what cycling really needs.

Our 3-to-2 odds for Wiens are looking shakier all the time. No matter who wins, it should be a great race.
