Great pic Gus, thanks for sharing. Love that pierced chainstay, missed that detail in the past.

They did tests recently on him and concluded he still has an engine big enough to keep in the peleton today.



I love this entry in his Wiki page:

'He consulted the Italian professor, Francesco Conconi (famous for pioneering EPO use in sport), from 1987 and his weight dropped from 85 to 78 kg under his guidance "changing himself into an all-round rider", said Philippe Brunel in L'Équipe. He was 10 kg lighter than when he was a junior'.


That's some quality consultation, maybe Lance should have consulted Conconi too rather than using all those drugs?

That'll be the road TT version. If the UCI banned that sort of bike to keep the costs down to everyday rider, (one of the reasons they quoted) they failed.
