Battle of words between Tour de France winners

Tour de FranceFive-times Tour de France winner Bernard Hinault has struck out at Lance Armstrong’s chance of winning this year.

In short, according to Hinault, he hasn’t got one.

“I hope he will not be there. Is he afraid of France? Nobody forced him to come, he only has to stay home! He cannot win the Tour. I hope that Contador gives him a beating.”

Strong words indeed, but not as strong as Armstrong’s reaction on Twitter;

“What a wanker. 5 TdF wins doesn’t buy you any common sense.”

Winning the Tour at 37 would be a huge achievement, but even if he doesn’t pull it off he’ll still have seven wins under his belt. Bernard Hinault will never have more than five.
