The question was asked in French. The answer came quickly and loudly in English. Johan Bruyneel, a poker-faced Belgian who drives with his knees and speaks five languages, was asked this: would Lance Armstrong have won a single Tour de France title without him? "No," Bruyneel said, "I don't think so." Bruyneel, 40, most noted for taking a wrong turn off a cliff in the Alps during cycling's greatest race, has lived in the shadow of Armstrong since the two joined forces in 1998.

Bud Cauley has the same good vibes at Sea Island, even if the stakes are different this time. The McGladrey Classic is where Cauley did well enough to secure his PGA Tour card, joining an elite list of players who went from college to a full tour card without going to Q-school. Now he's after his first win, and Cauley took a big step Thursday by overpowering the course at St. Simons Island, Ga., for an eight-under-par 62. It was his best score on the tour, and it gave him a share of the lead with Marco Dawson.

The man who helped orchestrate Lance Armstrong's seven Tour de France victories says the charges brought against him this week by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency have no merit. Johan Bruyneel, who managed Armstrong during his stints with U.S. Postal, Discovery and Team RadioShack, declared his innocence Friday, and expressed confidence that a new case against him would go nowhere. “I have never participated in any doping activity and I am innocent of all charges,” Bruyneel said in a statement posted to his website . “It cannot be right that I or anyone else can be pursued from court to court simply because our accusers do not like the decisions made along the way and so attempt to find a court which will get them the result they want,” he said.

Not only does Lance Armstrong intend to race again at the Tour de France in 2010, but he will do so on a new American-based team funded largely by RadioShack. From Annecy in France, where Armstrong moved from fourth place to third Thursday in the Tour de France, the 37-year-old, seven-time Tour winner announced the formation of a team that will be ready to compete next season.

If seven-time winner Lance Armstrong is stripped of his victories by cycling's governing body, the Tour de France will have no official winner from 1999-2005, according to Christian Prudhomme, the race's director. Prudhomme told the Associated Press on Friday that the Tour de France will follow the lead of the International Cycling Union, which will decide by the end of October whether to accept the U.S. Anti-Doping Assn.'s lifetime ban and stripping of victories for Armstrong, who is accused of using performance-enhancing drugs and participating in a system of cheating.

Lance Armstrong could be stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and is banned from competing as a triathlete as a result of new doping charges brought against him by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. A 15-page USADA charging letter first obtained by the Washington Post made new allegations against Armstrong, contending the agency collected 2009 and 2010 blood samples from Armstrong identified as "fully consistent with blood manipulation including EPO use and/or blood transfusions.

It would take something very unusual -- crash, illness -- for wraithlike Alberto Contador to lose the Tour de France now. But that doesn't mean the next three days will be boring. Expect Lance Armstrong to fight extra hard in today's 25-mile time trial in Annecy, France, and even more so on Saturday when the tour takes riders up the rocky, steep, brutally hot and desolate Mt. Ventoux. Armstrong probably can't win, but he can aim for the podium when the race ends Sunday in Paris.

This is the power of Lance Armstrong. People he has never met strain to touch him — if only with their fingertips, as if he can deliver salvation. People he has never met strain to get near him — but to spit at him in fury, as if he embodied evil. Love and hate is woven into the life of this 38-year-old Texan, a seven-time winner of cycling's most grueling race, the Tour de France; a man who gives of himself to cancer patients in ways others can't because he was one; a man who tried to stay retired only to get back on his bike to raise money for charity.
