Many people could care less about the Tour, but this is one of the most exciting sporting events ever. Especially this year. Lance Armstrong has come out of retirement to help raise awareness for his campaign called Livestrong. People think he is crazy and all about him. Well this video is what he feels… I will be putting up a video a day of Lance Armstrong and his campaign all week long.
