great poem on le tour!
I beg to differ that Lance is the greatest Cyclist, but hey he ain't that bad either and certainly has to be counted among some of the best.
His palmares lack a certain depth of discipline... I will admit he is one of the top Tour de France riders who specialised in that Grand Tour.
However his palmares will always lack what LeMond, Mercykx, Hinault, Anquetil, etc accomplished.
