It's Official: Lance is not riding the Vuelta a Espana!!!Lou M

I know this will open up the floodgates of criticism. While I am dissapointed, I understand. His wife is expecting twins and his main goal has been and will be the TDF. I rather see him spend time with this family now and dedicate himself for another TDF victory.

Next Up for Lance...
8/10 - USPS Director Sportif Johan Bruyneel announced today that Lance will not ride in the Vuelta España or the Clasica San Sebastian citing fatigue. He will, however, race back home in the USA at the San Francisco Grand Prix Sep 9th, and this will be his last race of the season.

So here's the latest on Lance's upcoming races:

- The Vuelta a Burgos (Aug 20-24)
- The Championship of Zurich (Aug 26)
- The Ronde van Nederland (Aug 28-Sep 1)
- The San Francisco Grand Prix (Sep 9)

Crap. Man,I've been trying to stay out of this, but... the guys says if Heras helps him win the TdF, he'll help Heras win the Vuelta. After the TdF, he's hedging. Now it's definite.

It's just the Badger saying "Next year, I ride for Greg LeMond..." all over again.

He's done a lot of good, and I hope there's some sort of explanation for this, but... you let Heras down, Lance. And you let us down, too. We thought you were good for your word.
