Thousands Turn Out to See Lance Armstrong Race in New York

Dave Aiello wrote, "The Associated Press estimates that 100,000 people turned out to watch Lance Armstrong race in Lower Manhattan yesterday in the New York City Cycling Championships. Kathleen and I attended the race, and it was certainly an impressive turnout."

"Ivan Dominguez of Team Saturn won the race. He was part of a seven man break-away that got away in the first 30 km of the race. The members of the break really worked hard, because they lead the race for almost 50 miles on one of the hottest and stillest days in Lower Manhattan this summer."

"The most interesting aspect of the race was the diverse group of spectators. There were clearly thousands of knowledgeable road cyclists and pro cycling fans. These are the core constituency of OLN. There were also thousands who turned out because of radio and TV promotions of the race. Most of those people recognized the U.S. Postal Service Cycling Team jerseys, but had difficulty figuring out which rider Lance Armstrong was, if he wasn't standing still."
