"If Lance truly wants--check that, needs--to win the Tour, he'll pull it out." This came from Jonathan Vaughters, another former teammate of Armstrong's, who was in Georgia as director of Team TIAA-CREF, a squad of promising young riders. "But if he's already mentally transitioned to his life after racing, he won't win, even though he's more physically gifted than anyone else out there. Because for the last six years that's what has made him different from the second-, third- and fourth-place finishers. Those guys want to win. Lance needs to win."
