Some fans of Gethin in both Surrey and Lancashire may have suspected as much but it still comes as a surprise that he is faster than Lance Armstrong. In winning the Blackpool marathon with a time of 2hrs. 34 mins. Gethin humbled Lance who has a PB of 2 hours, 46 minutes, 43 seconds that earned him 214th place in the New York event.

Cav wins time trial !

Roxanne, a criminology student, was the race beauty queen.

Roxanne Heijmans brought glamour to the event.

The Manx wonder won the time trial and the overall in the 67th Profronde Made. The event was run in an omnium format with a time trial, criterium and elimination race. In second place overall was Juan Antonio Flecha. The event was held on a 1200 metre circuit so it is unlikely that the time trial would have met the exacting standards of the RTTC. Nevertheless a measure of Cav’s ride is the third place of Stef Clement, twice Dutch TT champion and third in last year’s Worlds time trial.

Greg Lemond and Trek fight it out in court

The falling out between Lemond and Trek which is, it seems, about Greg’s refusal to modify his views about Lance Armstrong is heading for court. Papers filed by Trek state, inter alia, that the licence fee paid to Lemond for the use of his name is $350,000 per contract year.

Greg & Lance in happier times

A further irritation, Trek allege, is that Lemond took advantage of their employee pricing scheme to purchase, over a nine year period, bikes with a retail value of $2,500,000! They further state that recently Greg ordered two La Victoire models retailing at $5280 each and then sold them to customers that had already agreed to purchase less expensive models from a Trek dealer thereby undercutting the dealer. greenjersey is merely reporting the facts as he understands them without comment on Lemond as a businessman.
