Subject: After all these years are there still doubters?

Six consecutive Tour de France GC titles, 22 stage wins, 73 Yellow Jerseys, after recovering from a near-death cancer and complete remaking of his body; who still doubts the greatness of Lance Armstrong? I challenge anyone to factually refute my assertion that he is the greatest byciclist that has ever lived. He has to be the greatest tactition (in partnership with his team manager)and the most intuitive; proved over and over. Armstrong detractors can do nothing but close their eyes and ears and pretend that the past 6 titles have been due to luck or any other reason but the greatness of the man. I cannot even imagine that this record of 7 consecutive wins (or 7 wins in any single Grand Tour) will ever happen, again. Of course it isn't over, yet! It's possible that someone on the road might try to injure him to stop his win. There is nothing available to him or his team that isn't available to other teams in terms of communication, eqipment, training methods, food or (drugs) to explain any advantage.
