|a great event tonight in Los Angeles to benefit the Armstrong Foundation in the name of the late L.A. cycling guru Barry Wolfe.
Dr. Spencer spoke for about 1.5 hrs. with a slide show of photos from his own camera during the '03 Tour. Amazing insight into how the team prepares, functions and maintains over the course of the TdF and how he treats them all as the Doc. It was his first public speech ever and the photos were sorted last minute, but it came off as a well-oiled (lubed?) presentation. Photos of the team relaxing on the bus, having breakfast, prepping, etc., with the stories to go along with them made for a pretty fascinating night for the cycling fan.
PS - rumor has it Lance has been spotted around L.A. on rides :)
