    That is odd - Armstrong is a true phenom.
    Turning the other cheek is better than burying the other body.

      Yes, but notice that they will not end the sponsorship until after this year's Tour de France. Cynical?

          50% he gets picked up by UPS or FedEx and just spites the hell of the stupid Post Office.

          How do you announce you're leaving Lance Armstrong? Pretty classless.

            Especially since, IMO, he is the best athlete in the world.

              I personally think that Armstrong will retire after this year, so its not that big of a deal....

                on another note though, lance will now be the only living person to ever grace a Texas license plate. i actually want one when i get another car, they're pretty neat looking

                    Armstrong license plate to promote bicycle safety

                    By Leila Fadel

                    Star-Telegram Staff Writer


                    FORT WORTH - A specialty license plate promoting bicycle safety and encouraging drivers to make room for cyclists was released in Fort Worth on Thursday.

                    On the plate, five-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong rides to victory in front of a Texas flag.

                    On the bottom, the plate reads: "Share the Road Y'all."

                    "It's so Texan," said Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector Betsy Price, whose office handles license plate sales.

                    The Share the Road Y'all plate, released by the state Department of Transportation, costs $30 annually, $22 of which will go to the Texas Education Agency to promote bicyclist safety, education and awareness programs.

                    Armstrong, who was born and raised in Plano, is the first person to have his image imprinted on a Texas license plate. More than 100 specialty plates have been released since 1965, Price said.

                    "He's a Texan and someone we all need to be proud of," Price said."He's the premier cyclist in the world right now."

                    The Moritz cycling team in blue and white jerseys and officers from the Fort Worth Bike Patrol helped present the first plate Thursday.

                    Urbin McKeever, a member of the Bike Patrol Citizen's Support Group, purchased the first plate and put it on his black Acura.

                    Rick Whyte, an onlooker, had heard rumors that Lance Armstrong would make an appearance. He was disappointed, but he whipped out his checkbook and wrote a check for the second plate.

                    "This will never go on my car," he said. "It'll be framed and be a part of my Armstrong memorabilia."

                    For Art Exum, the plate is more than an ornament to jazz up a car or add to a collection. The cyclist was hit by a car more than two years ago. He said he knows cyclists who have died after being hit.

                    "We need anything we can get to raise awareness to get the message to people in cars that people on bikes have a right to some space on the road," he said.

                    To apply for a specialty license plate

                    Call the Tarrant County tax assessor-collector's office at (817) 884-1100 or the state Transportation Department at (512) 465-7611.
