07/22/2004 Entry: "Just win, Lance"

"Lance Armstrong said Wednesday's time trial up to L'Alpe D'Huez should not have been held and hoped it would not be repeated.

"'There were four or five kilometres of people all the time,' he said. 'I don't know that's a good thing for the Tour de France. I don't think it's safe and we would all agree with that, and the organisers would all agree.'

"Armstrong was spat at, jeered and insulted by crowding spectators as he stormed to victory over the 15.5-kilometre climbing course round 21 hairpin bends, to put one hand on the big prize he is close to winning for a record sixth time." (WTF?! emphasis mine)
Jeering crowds fail to deter Armstrong, by Francois Thomazeau, William Fotheringham, The Age, L'Alpe d'Huez, July 23, 2004

The Tour de France has never been a big deal with me, and although I was aware of Lance Armstrong's amazing run, I was more impressed that he did all or part of this amazing run after chemo and radiation. So, all I have to say is, just win, Lance, and to hell with those people, they're never going to win the Tour de France even once, the bastards.

The behavior of the fans is both despicable and dangerous. However, before anyone starts blaiming anti-american sentiments, the same thing happened when Eddy Mercx, a Belgian, dominated cycling in the early '70s, and Miguel Indurain in the '90s.
Before WWII, the Belgian team actually had to drop out once because of spectator violence.
