I think everyone should post their VO2 max.
Armstrong never got caught cheating.
That probably makes him as good a cheater as a cyclist.

This thread is worthless. Associations, suspicions, innuendos might make you raise your eyebrows, but nothing really matters until there is hard physical evidence. That Conti doesn't want to reveal his VO2 max is a statement of his failures in handling press, not proof of guilt. It's time to worry about something more important...
All pro cyclists dope. If you think any of them are clean perhaps you'd be interested in some lovely land I am selling...
i actually feel that if Lance is questioned in the same manner, every day on this forum, then everyone else in cycling who does anything suspicious, should be.
Funny how hardly anyone talks about the other races going on, even the Vuelta. Everything circles around LA and AC, even when they're not racing.
^good point, how exactly is this thread different from the thousands of lance dope threads which don't offer the "smoking ***" or "hand in the cookie jar" scenario either. And I don't think revealing his v02 max is some how going to give other teams an advantage...so why not just reveal it.
cantador is skinny.
I prefer consuming bivalves.

It always seems like cynics want to win people over to their cynical view of the world. Their favorite ploy is to accuse someone of being naive in an attempt to turn them to the dark side via shame.
Lemond can accurately predict all race finishes now. No reason to race anymore. All riders give Greg VO2 Max and he can place all riders in their appropriate finish spots . Damn Greg is a whiz!!! and DenisMenchov too!! Yall are some smart cupcakes!
I think people should quit worrying about this crap and focus on things that matter like the ongoing Worlds.
i may have overreacted
Meh, I don't know. I like AC regardless, so I'll just give him the benefit of the doubt. Lemond's v02 max can't be a perfect science. If anyone knows the details of how he relates v02 to doping, chime in.
I think Greg's the only person qualified to do that, and there's been some speculation that he got himself banned here. Perhaps a different channel would be more appropriate.
The search for inner peace continues...
