Check out these videos of 7 time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong
destroying the field on his bike. They simply can't handle him. On the Alpe D'Huez in 2001, Armstrong just rode away from Jan Ullrich to claim the stage and lay down a marker that he was the man to beat. Epic.
This compilation shows the best of Lance in action. One thing you'll notice is an absolute desire to win no matter what. You can see for yourself how he rides through a field to avoid crashing and losing his place. Brilliant stuff. Keep a close eye on his cadence- you'll notice it's very high, which is different to a lot of riders who chose to crunch a monster gear. Take after Lance and you'll be riding away from the peleton in no time.
Lance has written various books
on his life, including the best seller "It's Not About The Bike" which details his battle with cancer and journey back to the front of the peleton and 1999 Tour de France success.
Check out The Lance Armstrong Foundation site. An incredible charity that supports individuals with cancer, and really makes a difference. If you live in the USA, you can take part in LAF bike rides and raise money for a good cause. LIVE STRONG.
