Could Yoda beat Lance?(26 posts)

Could Yoda beat Lance?JediKnight
May 16, 2002 4:34 AM
Having recently seen the little green guy in action with a light-sabre it makes you wonder

If Yoda could get his special Jedi bike past the UCI do you think he could pull past Lance on the Alpe and change the history of the Tour for the next 3 years?

If the force was with Yoda, my guess is that Yoda would use a jedi mind trick to make Lance think his knees were exploding, and the rest would be history. Great question. What if the dark side won the Tour though. What if Evil Anakin took yellow in Paris. Do you think this would have a worst effect on cycling over the EPO issue?

Under the guidence of the evil director sportif (The Master) the Tour may fall under the reign of The Evil Overlord, Darth EPO, however, maybe the son of the overlord would learn the value of pure training and save the day!

Is Lance really Luke?

Is Princess Leia one of the podium girls?

I'd rather see Queen Amadalia on the podium. Something about Cinamon Roll buns in the hair was a turn off.

You guys are bordering on serious geekdom here.

Yoda does drugs. He'd be banned.

Has anyone seen the new action figures. They are really cool. I have been collecting them since I was 5.
you mean "dolls"?DougSloan

I don't mess around with that kid stuff. I have Lance and Jan action figures and a poster of Il Pirata in the garage. :-)
No, they aren't dolls. They look cool next to the model ships.LaVieClaire

BTW, they make Lance and Jan action figures? I have a whole room in my house dedicated to action figures. Those would make a nice edition.

Sorry to get you all worked up. I was kidding.

Collecting action figures is a serious business. They go for hundreds of dollars.

No, Pantani has been beaten by him before.

Could Lance be the dark side??? Isn't Lance's son named Luke?

Bottechia has a custom one built for the great jedi master.

Yoda doesn't have the body to support the VO2 max level necessary to beat Lance. Jedi mind tricks might be sweet, but could he keep it up for seven hours a day in the mountains? No way. Lance is the galactic champion.

Yoda weighs in at just over 20 pounds which takes a lot less to get up Alp Duez over Lance's larger frame.

Just making the bike beliving that it's actually moving. And with that project bike, he could sit in the hole beneath the sadle, from there, reach, he would
