    It is pretty well covered that he never trained during the winter months and would ''balloon'' so to speak......... on top of that he would very rarely recon the time trial routes and made some bizarre decisions in TDF time trials in particular much to the chagrin of his trainers and team bosses.........pretty much blew one tour, 2003 was it? when he did not recon the route of the last time trial, fell once etc!
    Was a big fan but tis a shame that he was not as commited as some.

    He's happy and seems to be enjoying post-racing life quite a bit...good for him.

    Imagine all the beers and good times that created that "ballooning" though. And for him to not have to train year-round to be able be as competitive as he was. I'd take the fun over minimal gains in the winter conditions.

    Mods were on the OP pretty fast. But I guess few banned users have as much notoriety as he achieved. He earned not a small measure of fame for coining a phrase that will live on in BF lingo for a long time: guads.

    That's a double-edged sword, though. Armstrong certainly had that commitment and Type A drive, and who would you rather be right now?

    Not saying that Jan had an easy road, but it seems like all of that is behind him now and he can move on and enjoy life. Not sure we'll ever say the same of LA.

    When I look at this photo I feel pure, unadulterated envy. Riding through breathtaking (literally and figuratively) switchbacks on a beautiful day with some of your best pals--does it get any better than that?
    The pleasure is momentary, the position ridiculous, and the expense damnable.
