What do you all think. Will Lance ever ride one the Giro or the Vuelta?

He rode the Vuelta in 1998. Finished 4th.

Will he ever do it again? I doubt it, it can only tarnish his mistique. Think about it, if you could only win one GT per year, you would have to choose the TdF. And the way Lance trains, with a singular GT as the goal, he couldn't pull off the double (or dare I say triple). So he could only finish in the top ten in a second GT, which would certainly diminish his image.

I would not drop dead if Lance decides to ride the Giro. I think he would try to win it, and winning both in one year has happened quite a bit in recent years. Roche, Indurain twice and Pantani, I think.
