Default Lance sets hour speed record




Lance spent 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday in Arlington, Va. signing copies of "Every
Second Counts." In this case it meant that Lance signed 750 books, or about one
book every 4.8 seconds.

I wonder if you'd be so suspicious if you knew that he used Anquetil's
pedaling style.


I had it suggested to me that Indurain taught it to him. I've had a lot of
bogus information foisted on me, so I'd like to confirm this...

Indurain may have rediscovered it, but Anqueitl can lay some claim to
it. Anquetil and Indurain were very similar riders; astounding time
trialers who had enough power to hang with the climbers in the
mountains.

Wrong, apparently there were tickets envolved and people
camped out to get them. rumour is by 5:00am that morning they were all
out.


Those were all the people who couldn't afford more than $162 to buy Lance's junior high
school love note on ebay.

Recent findings pour plenty of suspicion on anyone who is involved with
a doctor who is under suspicion.


So now you are guilty by association????

He always stated that he did not take any illegal substances but that is not
the same as stating that he never took any performance enhancing substances


So what? A "performance enhancing substance" that's legal is LEGAL. Caffeine is
a performance enhancing substance. Nearly every rider in Europe drinks espresso
or coffee with breakfast. Should that be scrutinized as well? How can anyone
cast recriminations over use of legal substances?
