Armstrong alone as 1st Tour six-timer
Armstrong said his US Postal team had an easier time delivering win number 6 than he imagined:
"We never had a sense of crisis, only the stress of the rain and the crashes in the first week," he said.
"I was surprised that some of the rivals were not better. Some of them just completely disappeared."
I have a question. I was watching the network news covering the tour de france and saw one of the riders had his foot stuck inside the support vehicle that follows their riders, and he was receiving medical attention on his foot while the vehicle and the rider were moving. Isn't receiving rides from other means than your own power while racing on your bicycle illegal.

Not when you're receiving medical attention. Otherwise, yes, I think it's illegal.
