“If I Did A Bag Of Lance Armstrong’s Blood, Could I Bike Up A Mountain?”

The answer is “yes”, probably, on biking up a mountain if you could already get 80% of the way to the top; but “no” if you think you could be competitive in the Tour de France, says PopSci’s Colin Lecher.

Turns out, doing all the performance enhancers that Armstrong has “allegedly” done (I’m eating some claim chowder on my earlier post defending him) wouldn’t benefit the average athlete as much as they “allegedly” benefited him.

Like Barry Bonds during the steroids era in baseball, Armstrong was still the best dirty rider in a sport full of them. That has to count for something, right?
