Well i can asure you i dont just watch half hour highlights of the tours.this year while im travelling i have my mum recording on dvd every minute of every race.i even packed up my job last year so i could watch all the tour de france.
Lances contract when Discovery Channel took over was either to race the tour de france in 2005 or 2006.So maybe its the sponsers of the team that are the problem.He was never going to continue another year as hes stated plenty of times in the past he misses his children,and the only reason his profile is as high as it is is because hes got a rock star girlfriend (which the press hype up) and hes survived cancer and did what he did in the tour de france.

Yes the spanish teams will ride the vuelta just like the italians ride the giro but apart from basso riding 2 of the 3 so far this year nobody else since indurain has done it (oh except pantani)because in this day and age it isnt possible and idurain did it what over 10 years ago and its moved on so much since then,partly due to money and sponsers.And yes basso rode 2 good tours but he was never going to win the tour de france unless lance fell off his bike and in the giro there wasnt really much competition in his and armstrong league.simoni has his days but to often falls apart and cunego well may as well not bothered this year.

Riders in this generation you cant compare to riders in the past like eddy merccx.Armstrong in this generation is the best in cycling.
