We lost 2 Texas icons this week

This morning, the UCI agreed with the USADA’s decision to strip my favorite Austinite of his Tour de France victories. Truely this is a sad day.

In case you haven’t followed Lance’s career, he started out as a triathlete, he’s a marathoner, and eventually he focused solely on cycling, recovering from cancer to win cycling’s most coveted title- seven times. He’s an all around badass who lives in my favorite city, hangs out with Mathew McConaughey, and dates rock stars.

I’m going to have to grieve this one. Lance, you were truely one of my sports icons. You were my Nolan Ryan. An athlete like you comes but once in a lifetime. I wish I didn’t know any of this. I wish I could continue to be inspired in ignorant bliss. But I can’t. And so I must grieve.
