2009 Tour de France: Astana’s New Sponsor

Sorry, all, for not posting more regularly. Time has been short lately and I haven’t had the time to post my thoughts on anything. I would love to cover stage 15 and its fireworks. Lance looked baked. Glad to see him bounce back a little today.

Lance mentioned today that the team would have a new American sponsor in 2010. I don’t have any basis for this conjecture but I think it might be Nike. I know one of the Nike execs was around Lance early in the race, according to his Twitter feed and it just seems like the kind of thing Nike should be doing, especially in conjunction with LiveStrong.

I guess we’ll find out tomorrow but I wanted to put it out there.

I’m off to bed. Maybe I’ll find time to write more tomorrow.
