Lance makes it to the Tour de France podium!

July 26th, 2009 · No Comments

Alberto, Andy and Armstrong!

Lance Armstrong made it to third place on the Tour de France podium by holding his own with Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck on the slopes of the vaunted Mt Ventoux and the next to the last stage of the 2009 Tour.  Today, Lance, barring the unforeseen, will stand on the podium with these two superb mountain climbers.  I was lucky enough to be able to cycle down to Mellow Johnny’s and watch the stage finish along side some of Lance’s most ardent supporters and Lance’s very own bike and coffee shop (Juan Pelota’s).  Here’s a very brief video of the crowd at Mellow Johnny’s applauding Lance as he crossed the finish line just behind Alberto and Andy.

Well, too bad we have to wait a whole year to see Lance battle it out with a new team vs. Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck.  But he’ll be racing soon enough in the Tour of Ireland and, hopefully, some day in the Tour of Texas (if we can make it happen) against Contador and the Schleck brothers.
