just won his 6th consecutive Tour de France.
That is such a HUGE accomplishment that it’s hard to even put it into words.
Congratulations to a guy who is the very essence of “T-Man”.
“Cycling is so hard, the suffering is so intense, that it’s absolutely cleansing. The pain is so deep and strong that a curtain descends over your brain… Once, someone asked me what pleasure I took in riding for so long. ‘Pleasure?’ I said. ‘I don’t understand the question.’ I didn’t do it for pleasure. I did it for pain.” - Lance Armstrong, from It’s Not About The Bike
The guy who wins this is the one who can endure the most pain over a three week period. The guy who can live at 120% of his aerobic threashold for several hours at a time.
