    I believe that, in addition to road cycling, he does both cyclocross and mountain biking.

    In post race interview today when Frankie asked how many cyclocross races he did this winter he
    replied: "One. Today was my second."

    He didn't actually do a cyclocross dismount. The mount was better, but he skipped on it. That's a
    sign of a novice.

    Or road cleats.

    Who cares anyway? It was a road race.

    I was very impressed with what he did there, but contrary to what others are saying, I saw little
    evidence of cyclocross skills. MTB skills, yes. It's not that I care so much about Lance's cross
    skills as I share that compulsive need to correct others that is so common here.
