If Lance was on Once would he win?

If Lance was on Credit Agricole would he win?

What do you think? Lance is a gracious leader and gives all the credit to his great team. He would probably say he wouldn't win without them.

But really now would he lose the TDF with so many mountain top finishes?

The way the past 2 days have gone, the peleton is 50 riders strong and disintegrates to 3 riders at the last climb, Lance would crush them all. Of course one can argue the team set that up.

Would you bet against him in a field like this year that he clearly outclasses?

in 4 tours Lance has had many new faces and it hasn't stopped him yet. By far this year is one of the best teams, reminds me of 1999's more all american lineup but this year they seem even more dominant. I think he raises the performance of all around him and instills his work ethic in whoever is around him. yes, he'd win especially with ONCE, imagine if Beloki and all were his domestiques, plus he'd have won the Team TT as well.

You can't just win with any team and any rider If Lance were on another team they would build it around him. Team Telecom, as it stands in 2002, couldn't support Lance; not that they wouldn't try. Do you think that Postal wouldn't love to have half of the Once team to work with Lance or Once love to have Lance? That is not to say, of course, that Haras and Rubierez haven't been stellar.
Once needs to decide on a leader... Igor or Beloki??spyderman

Heras and Rubiera are the future of USPS. Heras is a star on any other team. Like the rest of the cycling field, they're all waiting for LA to retire...
