But Lance was trying to become the IronMan world champion. That's a really big deal. And some of his teammates who confessed to doping were planning to compete in the Olympics.

I've been strangely fascinated by the whole thing and I just can't believe how it unfolded. I'm really stunned.
true story ... I'm in Tulsa which is within easy driving range of Texas. one year when Lance was 15 or so. He did our local triathlon and proceeded to smoke the entire field. all everyone was talking about was the kid that beat everyone silly.

long before Lance was a cyclist, he was a gifted triathlete.
