Default Denis Menchov: True Russian Hero, and greatest cyclist in Lance Armstrong era.

A midst the cheaters, wannabes, and hypocrites that was the Lance Armstrong era, only one man remains. This one man, this hero of the cycling world stood for justice, perseverance, and an unrelenting work ethic that catapulted him to glory. He is a legend that has only been beaten by his cheating, doping peers. This man is the great Russian hero, Denis Menchov.

Denis Menchov is the greatest cyclist to have ever lived, and if it were not for the cheaters in his era, like Lance Armstrong, Alberto Contador, Floyd Landis, and the list goes on and on and on....Denis Menchov would have undoubtedly have numerous TDF titles under his belt to add to his already impressive record...with wins in the Vuelta and Giro.

It is a travesty that the heroism of Denis Menchov, the diligent work he put in, racing clean and pure was damaged by the dopers of his time. Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a Russian hero whose victories were stolen by these dopers. It is a travesty of epic proportions. Denis Menchov will always be the greatest of his era even though he does not have all the awards to show for it because of the likes of those that doped.

By now this should've been a clinic thread.

If Menchov survives to retirement without a suspension for Vienna or Mantova he should consider himself luckier than even Mr. Teflon himself, Andreas Kloden.
