Lance has distilled the knowledge given him by Indurain, Sean Yates and Lemond and combined it with his incredible biology. Remember, Sean Yates hung around an two extra years to tutor a young Armstrong in race tactics. I have a tape of an early 90's Tour duPont, there is a five minute stretch early in a stage where Armstrong, riding next to then grizzled vet Lemond, questions him about his set-up, almost incessantly. Does anyone think Johan Bruyneel deserves some credit? I do, Bruyneel is the prototypical Euro-pro but he was able to adapt that regimen to an American team with a distinctly American team leader.
