Tour de France completions[edit]

He currently holds the American record for competing in nine Tours de France bicycle races from 1992 to 2000.

-- This statement was partially correct when written (he tied the record), and has since changed to completely incorrect. With the completion of the 2006 Tour de France, George Hincapie now holds the record. According to http://www.letour.fr:

Frankie Andreu - 9 tours, 9 completions Lance Armstrong - 11 tours, 8 completions George Hincapie - 11 tours, 10 completions (including 2006) Bobby Julich - 9 tours, 8 completions (including 2006) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 206.176.38.53 (talk) 18:25, July 26, 2006

Need for creating an independent entry for Betsy Andreu[edit]

Its not disputed that Frankie did EPO in his racing 98-00, hid it from his wife, and continued on as a director of the USPS team, when the entire team was thick and heavy into doping.

Betsy's actions now heavily covered in the media with various articles and many live interviews on cable and networks...are more or less going to require a separate entry for herself, because keeping the two combined does not easily reflect the historical events.

I believe there is a need for a separate entry. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.70.227.43 (talk) 03:59, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
