|I had heard earlier this year that Armstrong was going to make the World's one of his goals for the season but since then I've heard that he won't be going.
I'm going to the World's but I'm not sure how important it will be to have tickets and still see most of the action. That would be nice to know before spending the cash.

|I JUST read in the USA Today that Armstrong is now considering riding in the World's. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Personally, whether he's there or not won't have much of an impact on my enjoyment. There are plenty of guys (and ladies) to cheer for, and not just Americans.|

|make the difference. Lots of things on Lance's plate, TDF, being one of them. We live in hope, Lance's being here could make it that much bigger, and more successful. We'll see. Maybe he'll be here for the Hamilton chicks.|

|Do you have any knowledge about the amenities at the grandstand or the Claremont climb? For example, will there be large screen TVs so that you can see the race when it is not in the vicinity?|

|I don't know how they will cover the Claremont as it is a half mile long area so they would have to have many screens. The Claremont access has a drop off on one side and the other side backs unto the Bruce Trail area with free access from a large area so maybe they will fence off much of it. The top of the escarpment is mostly private homes so there will be little access on the top. It will be interesting to see the longer loop descending down the Jolley Cut, about 3/4 mile run. They will be travelling pretty fast down there.|

|Wow, how soon will it cost 100 Euros with another 50 Euro "convienence" fee daily to sit along side the Tour de France route. . .
Ticketmaster is evil incarnate.

|$150 for a week's worth of entertainment? $150 for 6 days of 8 hours of top level racing? When you consider that Bruce Springsteen tickets sold in Toronto for that much, it seems like a pretty good deal to me!|
