That's what the crowd wanted to see, I assure you that.
Yeah, I met Lance once and have thought he was a ****** ever since, however this is just smart on his part.

He doesn't need some yokel pedaling as fast as possible next to him going "Weee I'm as fast as Lance Armstrong!" before loosing control and plowing into him. That's not exactly good for the career. I'm actually surprised so many celebs participated in this for that exact reason, the Peleton isn't exactly the safest place in the world when it is made up of pro riders, let alone everyday cyclists.
