Sure you can join the french Morons and bash Lance about doping and ignore that is one of the most frequently tested athletes in history and has NEVER failed a drug test.
His personal interactive skills were never good but have improved over the years. But as to ability --- be real --- best American Cyclist --bar none
as to best cyclist ever -- hard call Lance is a TDF specialist so best TDF rider --YES but Eddie Merckx would probably be my pick for best of all time
mikebike, I was getting ready to unload on you until you mention Merckx. He is my favorite all-time rider too. I simply like LeMond because he was a deadly time trialler and that is the best indication of ability. Race Of Truth.
As for Lance passing dope tests. Barry Bonds has never failed a test either. He is/was big news over here during the whole baseball steroid period. All being compared to cycling here.
P.S. The French are morons. LeMond is an American with a bad last name.
