Spinning is not the magic bullet.

It is one technique that has been proven to be viable by a very influential current athlete. Yes, spinning is very good for many reasons, less stress on joints, takes advantage of your endurance over muscle strength, etc.

If Lance had decided not to come back from cancer(or quit after his first race back as he planned to), there is a very good chance that the current "mashingist"(my new word) racer in the peloton would be a multiple TdF champion. I doubt many people would be saying..if he only spun more he would be a better rider...
