    That's no tosser, that's Saluki!
    Same brain dead worship, same style of agressive, unoriginal, yet feeble insults. It's got to be.

    yea, she quits the forum in a huff, then this moronic poster who loves to throw insults around against people who know what a tool Armstrong really is starts to post the same tired stupid shit. Has saluki written all over it.

    What's really weird is that it's saluki content written in Doctor.House style...

    Don't try to bring up truth with people like this, they are stupid, and it just bounces off them like bullets off of Wonder Woman' bracelets.

    Cadel Evans, Stuart O'Grady, Brad McGee, Dean Woods, even Brett Aitken were all tested as having a higher VO2 max than Armstrong.

    Well, No_Positives has forgotten some important things about Armstrong...

    Highest recorded bench press ever, deep squat and dead lift too... What makes him absolut power lifting champion. Also he keeps world records in snatch and clean&jerk... He holds 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500, 3000 steeple chase, 5000 and 10000 meters track and field records... Hurdles disciplines are his too. He was also NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL MVP. I don't need to mention he was professional heavy weight boxing champion... You all know that.
    He was even offered some roles in XXX production films due to his enormous potential, but he refused... It's not good for his political career.
    The list of his achievements is endless... It just starts with Vuelta victory and "highest ever recorded VO2 Max".
    If I've missed something, forgive me... There's so much he achieved... So much that average brain can't memorise.
    Add achievements you remember of.

    You guys have it wrong. Wikipedia says he was 4th in the 1998 Vuelta but won the Tour of Spain. Wikipedia doesn't lie:

    Armstrong's cycling comeback began in 1998 when he finished fourth in the Vuelta a España and won the Tour of Spain. In 1999 he became a household name with his first Tour de France win, which included 4 stage wins. He beat the second place rider, Alex Zülle, by a margin of 7 minutes 37 seconds. However, the absence of Jan Ullrich (injury) and Marco Pantani (following drug misuse allegations) meant that Armstrong had not yet proven himself against the biggest names in cycling. Stage wins included the Prologue, stage 8, an individual time trial in Metz, an Alpine mountain stage win on stage 9, and the second individual time trial on stage 19.
