Last week I was at the Tour of California, but I didn’t attend any of the climbs. However, I wish I would have been on the climb where the pics above happened. The runner is doing a poor Didi Senft impersonation (but with a doping twist).
I don’t know what I like best about this series of photos: the fact that Lance manages to push the guy into the snowbank while riding in a peloton on a serious climb, or the laughter of the other members of the pack witnessing the action (look at the smile on Andy Schelck’s face).
I’ve always been a fan of Lance, but I’ve been really impressed with the way he’s handled all the tough questions during his comeback. As proof, check out the smack-down he puts on the British reporter in the video below.
