"ruthlessly efficient" "pain is the precursor to glory"AllisonHayes

"...none was so ruthlessly efficient" - what another panzer division invading in France? The Lance-a-lot doughboys?

i Yet Armstrong has not only grown stronger, he's grown more secure in his craft. He's more patient, better prepared and surrounded by a U.S. Postal Service team that is considered among the best in cycling in 50 years. Just as important, he's not under sponsor pressure to compete in the sport's two other big tours.

i "He can train a lot. Lance likes to train a lot; he prefers to train rather than race. He's a monster in doing that." Armstrong has learned to love the work as much as the reward, to recognize that pain is the precursor to glory.

(some great quotes; thx)

What kind of aberrant reporter is this? He decided to research ancient history instead of blowing attitude out his 3rd nostril?? Must be an old-timer instead of the younger Enquirer-style reporters we get in these parts ;-)

This article is a direct response to the idiot columnist who wrote that cycling isn't a sport....
