Lucky 7?

Lance Armstrong announced today that he will ride in the Tour de France this year and attempt to win an unprecedented 7th title. He's also riding the Tour de Georgia again April 19-24. Wow, he has a packed racing schedule this year.

I'm torn. Financially, I'm not sure I can swing another trip to the Tour this year, but it's become an annual voyage for me. In the heart of summer, it just wouldn't be the same if I wasn't gasping for air while climbing one of the Alps or the Pyrnees, melting pavement below, screaming French to either side, and nothing but blue skies above.
