The Old Lance

Today's penultimate stage of the Tour de France was a race up Mont Ventoux. The most striking thing about the race was the number of people on the top of the mountain, blocking the wind and accosting the riders. Compare this year to Lance's famous sprint up the mountain in 2000:

Lance has obviously slowed a bit since then, and I suspect we will be watching Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck battle things out for many years to come. Unless Greg LeMond is right about Contador doping.
