    @chowychow : Go to your local pool and take lessons. Swimming can be learned. It is of course more about proper technique than cycling or running. But you can learn it and swimming is the shortest of the three disciplines. So you can still catch up with a poor swimming time on the bike or on the run. Furthermore a wetsuit will help you a lot, especially when you are a poor swimmer.

    holy crap was he fast at IMTX. Such a bummer he had to pull out in the run, but seriously I’m surprised his tires didn’t melt on the bike section, he was motoring.

    best thing for swimmers is CITRUAID, recommended by gold medalist in swimming Sheila Taormina

    This may be the only thread about athletics I’ve read on youtube that doesn’t degenerate into bragging, trolling or sniping: how refreshing! If only all of the triathletes I compete against had such a reasonable attitude. Great sport, and if you can’t swim, there’s always duathlon.

    @chowychow haha exactly the same here!

    I can cycle and swim but I suck in running… too long legs… 😉 what if we change personalities at T2 😉

    I admire you very much.

  • By TheJGHolland, August 14, 2010 @ 11:25 am

    I don’t even qualify to suck at all three. So I just try and hope no one is looking.

  • By stephenouma, August 14, 2010 @ 2:36 pm

    @chowychow You can’t swim? I’m guessing your black.

    There are a lot of naysayers here who probably could not even reach 40 kph in speed let alone cycle for 40 km.

    If Lance were to attempt the Ironman, there is no question he would own the bike segment, probably set a new split on it that no one would ever touch for maybe half a century.

    There is a different mind-set for pro triathletes that don’t apply to time trials. Time trials are all-out effort. The bike segment is done conservatively here. Lance supercruises where others would max out.

    @ToxicFrog I think LA could do extremely well in the race….top 50 even! But on the bike its hard to say….id imagine he would HAVE done well a few years ago, he might have the edge after all….but its hard to say….lieto is a fantastic time trialist….He could race as a pro biker id say…..even do well!!

  • By ToxicFrog, August 14, 2010 @ 4:16 pm

    No doubt Lance would have zero chance at the overall. I’m speaking of only the bike stretch. Lance really should have the edge…maybe not today.

  • By percdann, August 14, 2010 @ 4:31 pm

    @ToxicFrog, Even in IM though i doubt he could outbike lieto. Lance is used to warming up for 30mins before hand. Its hard going from horizontal to vertical. The trick up the sleeve is armstrongs backround in triathlon. He has won many triathlons and was a top tier swimmer. Still not a chance against the pro IMs
