The coaches sometimes just sound like sophisticated fanboys. Contador - excellent lactate clearance! Armstrong - excellent efficiency and lost weight. Indurain - huge heart and stroke volume.His coach has been asked this question, this was his response. He doesn't say he doesn't know it, but he doesn't provide it either, which is just plain weird to me. Maybe it'll come with that study he's talking about, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.
I have no doubt any of these individuals are off the charts, it's what put them off the charts that's in question.
