I only read it for the cyclist interviews

playboy.com | lance armstrong

A little light rest-day reading to keep your Tour de France web reflexes sharp. Here's the interview Playboy magazine did with Lance Armstrong for its June issue.

Armstrong talks about LiveStrong, LeMond, and lots of grudges.

It's not a VeloNews interview, in any sense:

PLAYBOY: Some cyclists train by sleeping in an "altitude tent" with thin air that helps thicken the blood. It's a legal way to make your blood more efficient. Have you got one?
ARMSTRONG:: A tent's not big enough. I've got an altitude cubicle.

PLAYBOY: You sit in there and work on a computer?

ARMSTRONG:: No, you sleep in it. We sleep in it. We can get Sheryl's whole bed in there.

PLAYBOY: So in a virtual sense you've joined the mile-high club.

ARMSTRONG:: Oh, I've joined that club in a literal sense.

"I only read it for the cyclist interviews" - classic. :D

LA's high-altitude chamber may be big enough for him & Sheryl to have a right good snog, but I wonder: is it big enough for Hugh Hefner and his collection of siliconized sex slaves?

I'm sure some enterprising person would be glad to set up Mr. Hefner and his living dolls in exchange for promotional consideration. Or some other quid pro quo.

Hi Frank,

I just found your blog and am hooked. I publish a travel blog and posted today about Girona. The post is more about Girona than Lance, but I hyperlinked to you in the post's second paragraph. Clicking on "spectacularly fit guys in Spandex" brings folks to tdfblog.com. You've got a new reader. I'll be back often.
