Thanks for finding and posting this article...really interesting
The Journal of Applied Physiology
piece is on line at: http://jap.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/98/6/2191
if you would like to see some interesting science about Armstrong. The most interesting sentence in the entire piece may be the one that says:
"As such, it appears that in the detrained state, this individual's (Armostong) Vo2 max is in the range of the highest values than normal men can achieve with training."
It seems that after chemo and surgery and without training, Armstrong was in better shape than most people are with training......of course he did have epo, for what that is worth.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
