The Great American Tour Heist

Robbed the tour like an old-timey train – Movie poster LOC, 1896

As it was told to me by and industry insider

Another perspective, instead of an athletic morals failure story, is that the Lance Doping Era was the Great American Tour Heist. Stupid bike racers fooled everyone, stole Le Tour’s Money, got rich, famous.

That’s a movie I’d like to see, like the a train robbery or Oceans 11. Remember, these aren’t Wall Street, Ivy League corporate raiders, math geeks in a casino, or dotcommers, but bike racers.

Some of the stupidest people you’ll ever meet are bike racers and they made millions.
