Lance wins Leadville
Lance says on twitter that he cant fix punctures to save his life, if he flats he calls for the car… still it seems he did not ride alone and thanks to Trek had a few selfless friends with him who helped pull him along… er in road racing they have a name for such selfless riding companions…. Wiens rode alone shame he did not have Contador to help himPosted 8 years agoMarmosetMember
Good video here gives a taste of what the race is like:Posted 8 years agoBuzzardMember
Would be interested to know who the Trek helpers were, but according to the reports I read, Lance broke away from the bunch in a muddy section 65miles before the finish. He solo'd the rest of the race – so no help there then. Think we can safely say that he was the strongest there. The challenge now is to see if someone can break 6hrs. Talk of Levi, Horner etc coming next year to help LancePosted 8 years agonjee20Subscriber
I wish he was on a 29er! He was last year (Gary Fisher Superfly). Trek Top Fuel this year I belive…..(something with small wheels anyway!)
No he wasn't, last year he was on a 2009 Top Fuel with 26" ZTR Race wheels. This year it was a more or less stock Top Fuel 9.9 with a custom paint job, and 26" Bontrager Race XXX Lite wheels.Posted 8 years agozangolinMember

I see zangolin does not know iDave has the right to his own view so feels that he must question if his history is authentic. Has he ever read ST before Matt Hart wrote the training articles? Lance lovers so jealous!
Never suggested that an opinion should not be expressed – just questioned the judgement of linking that sort of opinion to your business/organisation. Especially when linked to raising money for cancer charity etc.
Nothing wrong with asking which athletes a coach has trained either.Posted 8 years ago
