... he'll have to thank the people who helped him get there. Hmmm, who would that be now ... Chris Carmichael? The Postal team? Johan Bruyneel? No, I'm thinking about the people who have REALLY motivated him. Here's my top 5 thus far:
1. Gilberto "I'm going to dominate Armstrong in the mountains" Simoni
2. Greg "I doped, so Lance is doping becasue I'm the best American cyclist of all time" LeMond
3. The entire French media
4. David "I've got absolutely no proof, but I need the money" Walsh
5. Roberto "I can win on my own" Heras
Motivation. Pure motivation.
