"It draws more attention, which is a positive. It also draws attention away from younger up and coming riders, which you could say is a negative, but it's temporary, it's one year, not ten years. Our team is a long-term proposition, so in terms of what happens next year, and where people's attention is, in some ways I think Lance coming back is good. Now a guy like Christian Vande Velde has the chance to actually beat, mano a mano, a sports legend, and that could elevate him, and our team, to a place in the public eye we never could have been elevated to if this hadn't happened. It gives us an opportunity to prove how good Christian Vande Velde and the team actually are. It's going to force us to up our game. If we can rise to the occasion, it's a good opportunity for us."
