Wow! Can anyone be anymore harsh than you for someone wanting to incite something that represents a
good conversational thread and discussion? Nope, don't think so. When you call someone a "jackass",
maybe you should look into a mirror more often if you want to see a jackass.
If you look at it, bicycle racing does require that you have a mental toughness. If you don't think
so, you must not have ever raced a bike. Lance does have extreme mental toughness and focus, and yes
a genetic gift that 99.9% of us in this world don't have. Jan has a gift as well, but as we've seen
in the past from him, his lack of discipline in the head has kept him from winning another Tour de
France, not his lack of physical prowess. This is a valid question. It's not "gay" as you say. I'm
sure you'll have some sort of "witty" response to this post, but I can easily discount the
uninformed and ignorant in this world, and also someone that doesn't post under his/her own name (as
I'm sure your name is not Cafe).
