Wow!  When I read the title of a Lance Armstrong sock monkey I didn't expect to be impressed.  I wouldn't consider Lance to be easy to ape, but you nailed it!  The clothing and positioning is great.  (And your title is oh-so clever!)  This is definatly my favorite thus far.  Amazing work!  Grin

The shirt logo is a priority mail sticker from the post office. The assorted USA fabrics were some unfinished quilt pieces I bought in a box lot at a yard sale. And the bike I got recently from my pal Bubba, (of Bubba's Sock Drawer,) when he was having a little sock monkey garage sale. The pedals and wheels really turn with the chain.

Thank you. It's fun to be amongst so many terrific sock monkey entries here.

Because life is just a little brighter with a sock monkey.

I LOVE IT!  

I had to e-mail the pics to my friend who is a cycling/tour de france fanatic.  I'm pretty sure he arranges his daily routine according to when the Outdoor Life Network is showing the tour, and if that means getting up at 4am, I think he does it.  So, no doubt he will love seeing this.

AWESOME JOB!

I love your lance sockstrong.  Good timing, too, given the tour has just started.  I have to show this to my husband, the cycling nut.  I'll bet our Tivo is full of cycling/tour de france coverage by now.

This is going to be a tough vote  . . .
