Lance is not only one of the best athletes in the world he’s a good guy.
There are all kinds of stories about his good nature. Like mentioned above where he got off his bike. On one of the stages of this tour he was riding with one of the youngest riders in the tour and they were speeding up the hills. He asked the kid if he could keep that speed up, and the kid said yes. He told him “Well, go win this stage then.” He let the kid ride up ahead but 2 german riders caught up and overtook him. He rode back up along the kid and saw the the kid just didn’t have enough left to win the stage so lance turned on the heat and beat both those guys that still had the lead.
He’s also been very generous to his team as I’ve stated before. He’s a 6 time world champion and you don’t see him milking his fame for glory in the spotlight. Glory to him is riding into Paris wearing the yellow jersey.
P.S. Besides being spit on by some people during one of the stages, he has to deal with this stuff.
