The end for Lance!
The headline of the NY Times Sports article says it all:
In a Final Push, Armstrong falls short
And here is a snip of their photo of him falling short:
I can’t feel indifferent to Lance’s performance now or winning 7 Tour de France titles. He was and is a cycling great, whatever the outcome of the current US Federal investigation of him and some of his close associates from the US Postal Service team days.
It seems only fitting that this visible end for Lance should have taken place on the climb of the Col de Tourmalet!
Update: I have just viewed Tour de France TV footage showing Lance’s attack and it was something to see how hard he did try. The scenery of the Col de Tourmalet was stunning of course!
