Lance Needs To Be Good and Lucky

By spokesman | September 28, 2008

Lance Armstrong is an extremely talented cyclist, but winning the Tour De France seven times also required some luck. Over the course of a 23 day race that covers more than 2000 miles, many things can go wrong. The loss of just a few minutes due to an accident, mechanical mishap or a bad day could have cost Lance one of those Tours.  I have included 2 videos in this post of near mishaps that Lance had in those 7 Tours.

The first video is from the 2003 Tour where Jose Beloki, crashed in front of Lance, breaking his femur and his arm.  Lance avoided the crash, but had to detour off of the road. He crossed a grass field and rejoined the race. If he had collided with Beloki, gotten a flat tire in the field or twisted an ankle while crossing the ravine to get back on the road, Lance could have lost that tour.

The second video is from later in the 2003 tour. Lance crashed when his handlebar got caught on a feedbag held by a spectator. Ullrich continued up the road and there is a debated if he waited.  Regardless, a more serious injury on that crash could have cost Lance that tour.

These were just two close calls out of many from the Tours that Lance won. As Lance tries for his eighth Tour, the question is not just - is he as good as ever?, but also has his luck run out?

If you want to see more video of Lance’s Tours, Amazon has a 12 hour DVD collection called Magnificent 7 (2005 Tour de France 12-Hour DVD; 6 pc.) or a much less expensive single DVD covering the first six tours that Lance won Big Six- Lance Armstrong’s Greatest Moments of the Tour De France.
