What should I ask Lance Tomorrow?

10.23.2009 | 5:48 pm

In tomorrow’s ride / photo opp, I will have approximately one minute where I will be able to ask Lance questions as we ride side by side.

What should I ask him?


  1. Comment by Joe | 10.23.2009 | 5:55 pm

    Ask him if you get 2 minutes for crossing the $1 million raised mark. 1 minute for all the good you’ve done? A less generous guy could be insulted.

  2. Comment by Swanny | 10.23.2009 | 5:59 pm

    Lance, will you endorse Dave Zabriskie’s product he named after you? The “Le Nut”?


  3. Comment by Robert Anderson | 10.23.2009 | 6:13 pm

    Dude! Slow down!

  4. Comment by John | 10.23.2009 | 6:20 pm

    Can I have your bike when the ride is over?

  9. Comment by Frank | 10.23.2009 | 6:46 pm

    What was the fastest speed you ever achieved on a bike?

  10. Comment by lisa | 10.23.2009 | 6:46 pm

    Ask him if he saw Al Franken kick some serious butt of a lobbyist on Capital Hill yesterday regarding healthcare, especially her efforts to compare apples to oranges and skew the cancer survival rates of different countries.

    It’s a great short video and I’m sure you could get something good out of it to extend the dialogue from one minute to a cancer free world rap of five.

    Hey you, outta the way

  12. Comment by Carl | 10.23.2009 | 7:04 pm

    If I was you I would only say hello. He should be the one that wants to talk to you so that he can thank you for all you have done and to tell you to quit picking on him in your blog… haha

    P.S. Great article in Bicycling mag. You won’t just be our Fatty after that article.

    Wanna race?

  21. Comment by silentsportsed | 10.23.2009 | 8:02 pm

    Ask him why — on my behalf, if not your own — you were not featured in Race Across The Sky. Suffice it to say you brought a compelling personal story to Leadville despite crashing during the race. The movie was great but could have done with less Lance and more of the human interest stories of the people behind him.

  22. Comment by Michael in TN | 10.23.2009 | 8:10 pm

    Just ride in uncomfortable silence and then say…”Well, don’t you have any questions for me, Lance?. Didn’t you see my article in Bicycling Magazine? I’m famous.”
    Oh, and tell him he needs a LiveStrong Challenge in the southeast!


  23. Comment by RyanT | 10.23.2009 | 8:12 pm

    See if he wants to go to Fall Moab so I can teach him how to fix a flat.

  24. Comment by GAC | 10.23.2009 | 8:28 pm

    Tell him his shoe’s untied, of course!

  25. Comment by naru | 10.23.2009 | 9:03 pm

    So tell me, what do you really think about Cantador?

  26. Comment by Bicycle Bill | 10.23.2009 | 9:31 pm

    Definitely agree with Marge. Ask him to jump for one of your pictures.

    Philippe Halsman would have…..

    When are you going to see the Team Radio Shack kit?

  30. Comment by Jeff L. | 10.23.2009 | 11:08 pm

    Ask him if he will rename Team RadioShack, “Team Fatty”. Make sure to point out that it will catch on much better than RadioShack and it has a built in fan base. For formal occassions, the team, of course, would be addressed as “Team Fat Cyclist,” but for informal occassions, Team Fatty would suffice. Also, the jerseys are already designed, so he wouldn’t have to develop new kit. If all this fails, try to find out when the new kit for RadioShack comes out.

  31. Comment by Steve | 10.23.2009 | 11:36 pm

    Ask him what Levi Leipheimer’s really like.

    “Would you kindly pull on this nice jersey?”

  35. Comment by twbagby | 10.24.2009 | 3:03 am

    Ask him for more time to talk. Team Fatty has raised more money than any other team for the LiveStrong Challenge. I rode in the LiveStrong Seattle Challenge this past June and Lance didn’t even bother showing up for the ride. I was disappointed to say the least. I have heard that he can be somewhat standoffish and rude in interviews. I hope this is just rumors. Hate to find out the guy isn’t for real. Tear it up on the ride this weekend!!!!

  36. Comment by Delirious71 | 10.24.2009 | 4:18 am

    “On your left!”

  37. Comment by Phil | 10.24.2009 | 4:38 am

    “Wow, you must really be starstruck right? Don’t worry, I get this a lot.”
    Then, convince him to put the FC logo on the Team Radioshack jersey.
    You know, you want to.

  38. Comment by Andrea | 10.24.2009 | 5:27 am

    Ask him what was up with his hair in Race Across the Sky. It looked wacky!

  42. Comment by doccrowley | 10.24.2009 | 8:05 am

    Lance, when will we see a LiveStrong event in Salt Lake City? No, really, it’ll fit well into your altitude training, really. Well kind of. Really.

  43. Comment by Beth | 10.24.2009 | 8:59 am

    um Lance…one minute? that’s it?

    You’re certainly worth more than one minute considering the 1) ridiculous amount of $$ you’ve raised for his foundation 2) are an incredibly compelling story that reflects well on his foundation; can’t buy pr like that
    Hey Lances flaks….if you’re reading these comments, get a little more generous with the time

  44. Comment by 100poundsago | 10.24.2009 | 9:05 am

    Ask if he has finger tendon issues from Twittering so much.

  45. Comment by Brandy | 10.24.2009 | 9:15 am

    1 min? You have raised over 700,000 dollars for LAF…breaking $$ records and you only get 1 min? Sheesh

    ok, then ask him “Hey did you see the article about me in Bicycling Magazine this month?” And if he would like it personally autographed by you.

    Congrats on the Bicycling Mag Article Fatty & Congrats for all you do for the LAF!!
    Fighting like Susan!

    Do the trick where you squeeze his brake lever and push off.

  47. Comment by DC | 10.24.2009 | 10:19 am

    Hey Lance Thanks for the Minute

    You’ve got 50 seconds left

    Oh right thanks Lance

    Anyway what I was thinking…

    Who are you again?

    Funny Lance like you wouldn’t know the Top Fundraiser!

    No, really. who are you? And 20 seconds by the way.

    Well Lance just one question. Who should I go with next year American Cancer Society or Susan G. Koman?
    And ah, give my last ten seconds to Johann

    “And I bet you didn’t know I was the voice of Herb Copperbottom in ‘Robots’? I was a poseable toy and everything. Hey, could you sign this jersey real quick? Next to my signature in the front? People get upset when both signatures ain’t on the same side…”

    I rode with him in Tremblant,Quebec this summer..nothing came out that was considered of the english language, everything came out wrong. In the end he was very easy to talk to. Enjoy!

    HAHA! I love everyone’s questions. Bunch of headcases you people are!

    E, I guess that makes you our leader. ;)

  55. Comment by Hautacam | 10.26.2009 | 11:33 am

    It’s too late for Austin, but here’s one for next year:

    Don’t say anything. On a gentle hill, just sneak up close behind him, slightly to the left or right, then reach over with your near hand and hook a couple fingers over one of his saddle rails, just behind the seatpost. Coast and let him pull you along. It will probably take him a few seconds to realize that something is wrong. When he does, and he looks around to see what it is, let go and race away ahead of him, laughing maniacally.

    This is also a good trick for your regular Alpine ride group.
