I just noticed this: everytime they show LA pop out of his pedal it makes me cringe. I can pedal pretty hard. I have popped out before and banged my doo-dads pretty hard. But I don't pedal as hard as Lance. It gives me the willys just talking about it. Reaux-sham-beaux Southpark-style!!
I can speak from experience on this one and it is no funLC

If he had not been going up a steep hill, then he would have likely gone down. I had a pedal break while sprinting out of a corner during a race and when down hard, along with a few people that I took with me. Lost skin on arm, hip, and leg along with some nice bike parts :( It took a long time before I could feel confident to go that hard again.
