This is a good question. I can't find any news about Lance racing anything recently.
Also, apparently the race was a 26 mile half marathon and a 52 mile marathon (probably the one Lance was in). Thanks for that link, it's the only thing I can find about Lance DNF'ing. He must've been hurting if he dropped with only 11 miles left in a 52 mile course.
Ok, so I realize that you nutjobs are all pro-SS bikes and apparently you just have to ride a 29'er now, you cats are really too much. My question is, does anyone have more 411 on why Lance-anator DNF'd this endurance race. Did he have a serious mechanical? Just pooped out, what???? I'm going to search for answers now, as I generally don't follow the race scene at all.
