Alberto's surgery was for a genuine life threatening illness.
Murray said:O2 centres are deep in the brainstem and they can't be surgically "adjusted". They cannot be turned up to "11".
Ferminal said: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
auscyclefan94 said: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!!!

the vagabond said: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.).

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!

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.
