The month of July for me traditionally means a bit of summer hibernation in front of the tv every evening watching the Tour de France. This being a 99.9% chance that Lance Armstrong won't be riding in it again, Nike commissioned graf artist Futura to develop graphics for his time trial bike. This has been blogged about elsewhere but it's such an odd combination of characters that's interesting. There's a pretty cool website detailing the icons Futura created to visually tell Lance's story. Each day of the tour, certain stickers are placed on his regular road bike to remind him of both glory and agony.
