Hans and I speak our very own brand of Portuguese for about a minute. Then we switch back to the English channel and talk about the Tour of Georgia and the Paris-Roubaix bicycle races. We weren't there this year, but every year, whether we see it on TV, follow it online, or read about it the next day in the papers, it's as if we were there. Then the brothers take a walk down (our rather hazy) memory lane and try to piece together the history of American cycling on the European continent, particularly the 7-Eleven-sponsored team which later became Lance Armstrong's Motorola team. This was before he switched to the French Cofidis team and before he was diagnosed with cancer. Armstrong later joined the US Postal team which was a descendant of Coach Eddie Borysewicz's Subaru-Montgomery team. That team is now sponsored by Discovery Communications.
