Hey - just a thought to kick around after reading several of the recent articles about the 06 TDF and Lance's past domination (other than 03). He seems to have held a magical sway over most of the peloton in 06, kind of like a Jedi mind trick thing. . .
So, here is my question: what do you think the key to his wins was - pure physical domination or a combination of physical and mental domination? Again, other than 99 and 03, he seems to have so intimated riders that I wonder if they went in thinking they were competing for 2/3? Think of Jan Ulrich on the prologue in 05 . . .his tour was over in the first few minutes as were, I guess many others.
60/40, 70/30 percentage of physical domination to mental domination?
