I give Lance Armstrong a lot of shit, but this time I gotta give him some props: He’s gonna do Chris Carmichael like Snake does me.
He did, however, engage in a little trash talk with coach Chris Carmichael, a Leadville veteran who will compete again this year.
“I know I can beat Carmichael. I will be home and showered and probably three beers in by the time Carmichael makes it in.”
I have it on good authority that Carmichael has lost a grand each of the last two years with his failure to come in under nine hours. He’s back here with me in the “never gonna sub nine” club.
That said, he’ll probably ride an 8:20 and make me look like a fat fuck.
Which, of course, I am.by
