Armstrong v. Landis in Colorado, Kobe will not make trip


The much anticipated bike race between “GI Joe” Lance Armstrong and noted blackmail artist Floyd Landis is back on.  You may remember Floyd Landis, if not for the failed drug tests after the Tour de France, surely for the threatening “hide the weenie” comments left on Greg LaMond’s voicemail.


Armstrong apparently spent part of yesterday riding the trail, in Leadville, CO, with coach Chris Carmichael.

The race, the Leadville 100, is scheduled for August 11.

Carmichael was apparently impressed enough to comment on his blog,

“For the record, Lance is not only quite fit, but he’s also very good on a mountain bike.”

What can you say?  The man’s got ball.  I hope he wipes the mountain with Landis.


No further word on the Barry Bonds v. Dalai Lama chess match.  Latest reports have the Lama golfing in the Himalayas.

    What was 2SL’s press conference about?

  2. TheGoldfishCowboy Says:

    yeah no kidding

  3. smoothron Says:

    It’s funny that 2SL looks like John Pelphrey and Floyd Landis, two men who look nothing alike.

  4. trust but verify Says:

    For the record, Landis left no message on LeMond’s machine. Will Geoghegan, his then-manager but acting on his own impulse, called and spoke to LeMond directly. This resulted in Geohegan’s dismissal and apologies.

    Wow, you are naive. I’m actually surprised you spelled these two riders’ names correctly [oops! I’ll give you a get-out-of-jail-free card for “LaMond”, since he’s not exactly relevant to anything anymore.]

    Your info is incredible; as in “lacks credibility”. But, hey, blogs don’t need to cite sources or maintain any credibility, amirite?

    Dear Sirs.

    In May, I used MS Paint to put a wang on Landis’ face. If you were looking for the actual story, maybe a humor/sports blog isnt the right place.

    May I suggest the Rocky Mountain News (which I cited above).

    Thanks for stopping by.

    It’s OK, TGC. Jim has moved on to the lolcats site to chastise them for their poor grammar.

    Hey Pudge, if you ever met Floyd Landis you’d change your mind about your comments. It is very different to meet “bad guys” and “heroes” in person. They become real people who somehow manage to rise above many others.

    Holy cow! is that the gay guy from “Best in Show”?

    How many kimonos are you taking on this trip?

    i think she thinks that bikers levitate.

    no, dear, those wheels are attached to the seat.

    poor girl.
