    Lance/Levi to race PMBAR

    Any truth to the rumor I heard up at the Hub yesterday that Lance Armstrong and Levi Leipheimer were putting together a team for PMBAR? It makes sense. Lance is out there looking for unsanctioned events to dodge his lifetime ban and Levi has finished his 6 month suspension but still has not been hired by a pro team for this year. They both have done MTB races in the past, although some would argue that Leadville is more of a road race than MTB.

    I would think they could kill it going uphill, but lack of local trail knowledge/navigation might keep them from winning.

    Hey - at least give me credit for trying. Not as good as last years Black Mtn. trail to be closed thread, but somebody had to give it a shot.

    Now you will feel dumb if Lance and Levi really do show up.

    No credit, I had it figured out from the title.

    Ok, maybe just a little credit for trying.
    I would have at least let it ride though to see if somebody would bite.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    I listened to a report on NPR today for 5 minutes about the US Navy sending retired military dolphins to a facility in Oklahoma before I realized it was an April Fools thing.

    VeloNews story about Andy Shleck leading out Fabian on the Paris Roubaix cobbles was just subtle enough to get my vote for best 4/1 story.

    Actually, it's a bit of a grey area.
