As part of those sanctions, all results going back to August 1998, including his seven Tour wins, were voided.

That old boy can go ... I didn't think he would punish himself that much but he did.

Without the illness I would never have been forced to re-evaluate my life and my career. I know if I had not had cancer I would not have won the Tour de France.

A boo is a lot louder than a cheer. If you have 10 people cheering and one person booing all you hear is the booing.

I just have to watch what happens in the press and see how it plays out. You know it's always interesting reading, you just watch that stuff and never know how it's going to play out. It's not the first time it's happened.

This thing stinks

He's the most recognizable American rider in the sport today. At the races men women and children crowd around the Discovery bus to see George. He's the leader of this team.

I have to say I was surprised when I saw that announcement.

I don't really miss competing as much as I thought I would. Being out there reminds me how much I enjoyed spending time with my teammates

I figure the faster I pedal the faster I can retire.

We were looking at the Chicago Marathon, but a conflict arose with the date and New York seems to fit our schedule better. I've been training some, but I wouldn't call it serious. It's just something to fill a void in my life after I quit competing as a professional cyclist.
