Lance Armstrong is kind of my hero now…

I look at photos every day. Hundreds if not thousands of them. I have bookmarks for my bookmarks of my favorite photography sites. That said, I haven’t seen a set of photos that made me laugh as much as these did in the last few weeks.

During Stage 4 of the Tour of California (I believe it was on the 18th?), the ‘LiveClean Devil’ was running along side Lance Armstrong with a pair of syringes in the shape of a pitchfork. While going uphill in a pack of riders and not skipping a beat, Armstrong pushed the fool into a snowbank and kept moving on. From what I’ve found online, Tim De Waele is the only photographer to catch the incident on film. You can see his photos HERE

I also found the video online as well.
