I am almost done with a great book on Lance Armstrong. Its called "Its not about the bike". I must say its one hell of a book.
Its great because it really inspires and pushes you to try and do some thing right away. It also gave me a complex about my cycling. I recently participated in a cycle rally and covered 30 km in a pathetic 1 hour and 10 minutes (I defend myself saying I had no training and what not). The Tour riders do 30 Km uphil in some surreal 25 minutes!
And to think that this guy went from 40% chance of survival to 7 continuous tour victories! Its mind boggling. Check out this great video of Lance speaking at the ESPY awards - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytZkRFRf0Do
and here's one of the god climbing the Sestriere in 1999 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiCIJ2JewPE
Definitely read the book guys. Its a whole new perspective on what the human mind and body can do.
