Or rather, the Tour de France is too commercialised. Most other races...
I don't know. A quotation from Paolo Bettini, who just won this
season's Lumbardy: "If I want to call my career truly perfect, I still
have to win the Tour of Flanders, the World Championship, and really
Paris-Roubaix as well." Now there's a sportsman I respect a damn sight
more than one-trick-pony Armstrong.
