|Subject: ||RE: Why do people hate Lance Armstrong|
Anybody on the planet can run-and with talent, can run well. To be even a moderate local success in bike racing, one needs thousands of dollars worth of bicycle. It makes alpine ski racing seem inexpensive. To be a worldwide success, one needs thousands of dollars worth of bicycle, talent, and perfomance enhancing drugs. He is (or was a couple years ago) at the pinnacle of this ridiculously silly rich kid sport, and as the king, represents all that is wrong with bike racing.
