Focusing on bicycling and motorcycling
Sooner or later its time to gain some weight, open a beer, and move on. I suspect this year or the next for Tex. Even the ageless wonder Joop Zoetemelk was slowing down at 39.So I'm looking forward to this tour as much as a story of Big Tex's human evolution as well as who wins the hammerfest.
A sure sign of age is when the "the competition is much tougher than before" quotes start coming. Greg LeMond said much the same thing before he retired. He's had a great career, it's time for BigTex to hang up the wheels and get serious about his cancer charity work -- he might even spend some time with his wives and kids!
Frankly, LA and Co. have some backtracking to do, after their campaign impuning the character/ability/etc. of Contador. Suspect this is the beginning of some repositioning prior to the TdF to adjust expectations commensurate with performance.
