Early career

Armstrong began his sporting career as a triathlete, competing in adult competitions from the age of 14, he even appeared on the cover of Triathlete Magazine at age 17. It soon became clear that his greatest talent was as a bicycle racer. At 17, he received an invitation to train with the Junior National Cycling Team. Plano Independent School District´s school board said that the 42 day leave to train, taken during the second semester of his senior year, would bar him from graduating. Armstrong withdrew from Plano East Senior High School with his mother´s blessing and went to train with the team. He graduated from Bending Oaks Private Academy in Dallas the following spring. Armstrong still harbors resentment toward Plano because of this and prefers his adopted home of Austin, Texas.

After competing as a cycling amateur, winning the US amateur championship in 1991 and finishing 14th in the 1992 Olympics road race, Armstrong turned professional in 1992. He finished last in his first professional cycle race, the Clasica San Sebastian. However, the following year he scored his first major victory as he rode solo to win the World Cycling Championship in Oslo, Norway. His victory was so impressive that he was invited to an audience with the King of Norway which he initially turned down after finding his mother was not included in the invitation. Minutes later, the King invited both.

His success continued with Team Motorola, with whom he won stages in the 1993 and 1995 Tours de France and several classic one-day events. Also in 1995, he won the premier U.S. cycling event, the Tour DuPont, after placing second in 1994. He won the Tour DuPont again in 1996 and was ranked the number one cyclist in the world. Later in 1996, however, he abandoned the Tour de France and had a disappointing Olympic Games. These early disappointments spurred him on to the great things he has achieved post-cancer, and he admits that if he had given in on the devilishly difficult Clasica San Sebastian in which he had previously finished last, he could have retired from the sport.

Spændende læsning.

Indurain var heller ikke kendt som den store klatrer ved Tour 1990, hvor han havnede udenfor Top 10.

Her er kradset noget ned omkring Armstrongs specielle evner - ligeledes fra Wikipedia.

Rare athletic physical attributes

All top cyclists have excellent key physical attributes. Armstrong is no exception, although in one way, he may be unusually good even for an elite athlete. He is near the top but not at the top aerobically, having a VO2 Max of 83.8 mL/kg/min — much higher than the average person (40-50) but not as high as that of some other elite cyclists, such as Miguel Indurain (88.0, although reports exist that Indurain tested at 92-94) or Greg LeMond (92.5)[citation needed]. His heart is 30 percent larger than average, but an enlarged heart is common for athletes as well. He has a resting heart rate of 32-34 beats per minute with a max heart rate at 201 bpm. Armstrong´s most unusual attribute may be his low lactate levels: even with intense training, while the levels of most other racers range from 12 μL/kg to as much as 20 μL/kg, Armstrong doesn´t go above 6 μL/kg. The result is that less lactic acid accumulates in Armstrong´s system, so he likely feels less physical fatigue from severe efforts and/or he is able to sustain the same effort as other elite racers with less fatigue and faster recovery times. Some theorize that his high pedaling cadence is designed to take advantage of this, while others — like Jan Ullrich — rely on their anaerobic capacity more, pushing a larger gear at a lower rate. Further improvements in Armstrong´s physical attributes and performance have been attributed to training induced increases in his muscular efficiency indicating changes in muscle myosin type

Pibe;
Indurain kørte som hjælperytter for Delgado i 1990, og kunne ifølge Jørgen Leths "Den gule trøje i de høje bjerge" sagtens være havnet på podiet, hvis han havde kørt sin egen chance.

@ Duck

Han er da og var da bestemt en god cykelrytter, også før sin sygdom, men man går ikke fra, at stå af i touren og til, at blive en sublim klatrer, efter en kræftsygdom. Ikke i min bog.

Det stinker af short cuts.

Man kan jo ikke andet end at græmmes over at Landis nu er røget i fælden. Idiot.

Men det bliver da lidt nemmere at forstå, når man læser overstående. Han er sgu lavet af noget specielt stof.

Jeg tror ikke på at Lance var dopet.

"Ikke i min bog."
Men i Armstrongs bog er det sådan han beskriver det.
En bog der er ret eventyragtig, men alligevel..

Han var i den alder hvor cykelryttere ofte udvikler sig "færdigt" så at sige, og han nævner selv at anderledes træning/kost osv, sammenholdt med det jeg nævnte tidligere med en ændret muskelmasse, gjorde at han pludselig evnede at følge de bedste i bjergene.

Om han fik medicinsk hjælp til sin forvandling, ja sikkert. Det jeg mener er bare at du ikke kan dope et æsel op til at være en bjergged, eller noget. Der skal være noget at arbejde med.

Cambi, Leth ryger hash. OK så før Touren 1990, da han var 16.

Lehrer, doping er ikke en genvej men en nødvendighed, hvis man vil vinde Tour de France.

Du har jo mere eller mindre accepteret, at de fleste ryttere doper sig eller dopede sig. Hvis det kun var medicinen, der gjorde Lance til noget særligt, hvorfor nuppede ingen så i løbet af 7 ÅR den hellige mixtur, for bare at nærme sig hans klasse.

Ja, den tanke har jeg også haft. Hvis alle er dopet, hvorfor kunne de så ikke følge med Lance. Det var jo reelt set kun Ullrich og til sidst Basso der kunne være med.
