SAME LANCE, NEW DISCOVERY. Tim Maloney of www.cyclingnews.com took this photo earlier today as Lance Armstrong introduced his new team in Washington, D.C. Gone is the red, white, and blue. The Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team (formerly sponsored by the U.S. Postal Service), donning light blue and white jerseys, will field a highly competitive group of riders in most major international road races.
DEFEND THE TOUR DE FRANCE? Will Lance defend his title as the 6-time champ of the Tour de France? He's not saying. Don't count him out. But there are other mountains to conquer. He's yet to win either of the other two crown jewels of cycling: the Gyro de Italia or Vuelta Espana. Why not test his mountain prowess in Italy and Spain?
