What sports figures does El Paso have to compare with those campaigning in New Mexico the past year? Well, there's one late-round NFL draft choice who chose to play college ball at Fordham.

Presently, NM has Lance Armstrong, and in the past year they had Trainer Chip Wooley who trained the most recent Kentucky Winner, Mine That Bird. Moreover, Conveyance, another solid co-favorite in this year's Kentucky Derby next Saturday, trained by Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, tuned up at Sunland Park and ran his last race there. Bob Baffert has won the Kentucky three times and one of his horses "Lookin at Lucky" will enter this year's Derby as the solid favorite.

So what is so great about Chip Wooley’s Derby win in his first try? Well, the nation’s indisputable top trainer in this decade, Todd Pletcher has never won the race--in 24 tries.

He will most likely shoot, successfully, a few as they cowardly hide their fat as ses behind their buddies.

I'm looking forward to all the coverage I can get on this event. I'm a big fan of Lance Armstrong. He has overcome health challenges that would have destroyed most men. His accomplishments have been phenomenal. I love looking at his pictures. He's in great shape.

If you want to read one of the greater articles written about Lance Armstrong, I personally translated into EN, the article from a French cycling mag, VLO... from 2001, and posted it on my blog two years ago...

Dear ZENmud, thank you so much for the links to the pix and translated article. Lance Armstrong is so incredibly fit. His legs sure look powerful and he has such a determined look when he races. Look at the calves on him! I found the article that delved into the mechanics of his racing absolutely fascinating. LA is truly a marvel of human performance and athletic prowess. Thanks again for translating and sharing.:-)
