Not an easy thing to do when your sucking wind, (come on we know he has to be suffering at least a little). During a hard effort ride last night I thought I would try to keep such a poker face at the to of the climbs.....not an easy thing to do.

Poker face is one aspect, but he conserves energy by not keeping cool.

Its kind of ironic, but as we fatigue, sometimes the actions we do (like grip the bars tighter or grimace or frown from the pain) waste even more energy.

So the "cool" look of Lance pays benefits 2fold.

it was supposedly a bluff - part of the strategy to make the other riders complacent and a way to toy with the french media.
