If scripted by Hollywood, the story would be dismissed as trite melodrama: A deadly disease strikes a promising athlete. Despite desperately thin odds, he manages not only to beat the affliction but also to return to the sport and win its top prize. Unbelievable, except it�s true. But the story doesn�t end on the finish line at the Tour de France. His experience made him a part of a cancer community, and motivated him to unleash the same passion and drive he does in bike races to the fight against cancer. Since he made history in 1999, he has won the tour 4 more times, and has become one of the most recognizable and admired people of this era.

Beering the race
F1 race brought about an interesting watch.. Wanted so badly for Raikkonen to win but his typical bad luck ran him down with a rear locked wheels just when he was leading the race.... Legends Of the Rock pub in Koramangala, is pretty cool... nothing fancy but cool.. We watched the race there .. and also ended up getting T shirts and Caps and a 5 Litre beer... buhahahah !! If you are interested in Live music or playing the guitar.. visitLegends of the Rock on Tuesdays.. Also there are information of Acoustic guitar lessons.. so if anyone is interested ... please check that pub out ... Lance Armstrong had his seventh win... it was awesome watching him go.. Ullrich did his best but I guess he has to wait till the next race.. I think he is a great achiever.. going by his life..
