I've seen drilled out crank arms, chain rings and derailleur arms. I'd suspect that the removal by surgery of unused brain matter was just His Lanceness's way of shedding weight while circumventing the UCI's 6.8kg rule. :D:D

Alberto's surgery was for a genuine life threatening illness.

I believe Lance's was as well.

O2 centres are deep in the brainstem and they can't be surgically "adjusted". They cannot be turned up to "11".

Ah, you see this is interesting to hear about! So obviously O2 centres are not something impacted by their surgeries. I wonder what might be?

It's not a theory unless you're able to cite journals which clearly indicate that this kind of manipulation is possible/has been performed

If you cannot, it's merely a suggestion, a completely crazy (and hypothetical) one :)

Thank you for the clarification. As I noted, my background is not medical.

it's funny, all the french use to use his cancer treatment and brain surgery as an unfair advantage. Now all of lord Pharmstrong's followers are using that same theory of which they criticised the french of for their own arguement.

Talk about Hypocrisy!!!

Well, I am actually talking about Lance and Alberto. I am a fan of both.

Your theory is weak, non-intuitive, and unworthy of serious discussion.

This seems a bit personal. I am sorry you feel this way.

People who are good at cycling are more inclined toward baldness, depression, and mathematical ability than the population at large. (I don't have data for this, but any observant person who has been around cycling for a long time knows it's true.).

This seems not to hold true, as there have been numerous great champions who have not been bald. Most, if not all of us, cannot claim to understand if these champions have had depression or better math skills.

No need to call names if you disagree with a thread or post! Shows a serious lack of class.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I'm not disagreeing with the OP's attempts to waste space on te' interents, just pointing out that he (it) is a trolling moron.

If you want class my advice would be to avoid the internet!

You are trolling by posting remarks that would be considered antagonistic.

Well I am sorry. I guess that i was just angry because your own theory was at odds with my own explanation of how Lance and Bertie are just so gosh darn good.

I happen to think that they are part of an experimental breeding programme which involves crossing Hollywood action stars with famous cyclists. Lance is the result of a cross fertilization of schwarzenegger and Coppi while Bertie is a cross between Chuck Norris and Merckx.

Jacky Durand was an accidental by product in the early stages of the programme. While trying to cross Steven Segal with a retired Belgian cycling legend a Jack Russel terrier ran into the machine. The result was determined, incompetent and had bad hair.

I appreciate the humerous post, although you still have been trolling quite hard.
