    Maybe the solution for all to enjoy these events is a special lane for the doofuseseses to run along in that is fenced off from the riders. Perhaps even two fences, so there is a no man's land? It could be mined with explosive bank dye packs and patrolled by hantavirus infected squirrels…

    Dear Mr. Levi,

    I have discussed this my closest friends and family. I do believe you are right, and we do have a case.

    I will be contacting your office if your offer is still good.

    What most people seem to have missed is that Lance was coming up on the guy from behind, with the guy running along the side of the road with this potential weapon in his hand. Lance must have known that the guy's protest was with him. Who knew what the guy would do as Lance rode by him? Would he jab at Lance with his spear? Perhaps screw up and end up taking Lance down? Look at the photos and you'll see that Lance didn't leave the group to get to this guy, he was just that close, certainly close enough to do damage. Lance may have been just being proactive, shoving an obvious threat out of his way so he could get on with the race.

    It's interesting that so many people who have no experience with what it takes to ride and win like Lance hate him because he doesn't behave the way they think they would if they were him. Ever consider that perhaps that's what it takes to be that kind of winner? Maybe that's why you're typing while he's racing!
