Re: Reed Albergotti Article dated June 10, 2009

Dear Sirs:

I am writing in response to the article written by Reed Albergotti which inaccurately and ineptly described what Mr. Albergotti perceived as an
ongoing feud between Greg LeMond and me.   In general, the article fell far short of minimum journalistic standards on many levels. The article was egregiously one-sided, omitted essential material facts and contained many facts which Mr. Albergotti knew, or should have known, were either false or highly questionable.

As reflected in the LeMond sworn testimony I furnished you, the conversation of August 1, 2001, described by Albergotti was not during LeMond's bike ride with George Mount.  Both LeMond and his wife who claims she took notes of the conversation, testified that they were in their car on the way home from the Minneapolis airport during the call.  During the call itself, LeMond told me he was on a lake somewhere in Minnesota.  While LeMond's whereabouts is of no concern to me or presumably anyone else, it is illustrative of the absurdity of LeMond's claims in a wide range of matters.

Initially, I cannot overemphasize the fact that there is no feud between LeMond and me.  I have had no contact with him and certainly have much more productive work to do than to feud with Greg LeMond.  His lawsuit concerns a business relationship with Trek, not me.  The "battle" has not been "playing out in federal court"; to the contrary, I have not been involved in any such proceedings because I know nothing about his relationship or dispute with Trek other than some initial press reports when he filed his case some time ago.

Had I been responsible for Trek's conduct, I would be a defendant in the case; had I "maliciously interfered" with any of his business interests or done anything to injure LeMond, his brand or his reputation, I would be a defendant in the case.  I am not.  The "explosive charges" in LeMond's court papers were obviously included purely for effect, as there is no basis to anything he has said about me in some time.  Why he chooses to write and talk about me is anybody¹s guess.

In short, Greg LeMond is involved in several "feuds" - primarily with business relationships which have gone sour.  He was sued by LifeFitness just last week in an effort to terminate a contract for his exercise bicycle, which has proven defective and apparently caused LifeFitness a great deal of money and inconvenience.  He has also been involved in lawsuits to terminate relationships with his long-time manager and other partnership entities.  He may be in a feud with me, but I am not involved in a feud with him; I am focused on cancer survivors, their families,  and my return to cycling.

Very truly yours,

Lance Armstrong

Creatine Supplements...

So, what is creatine? Our bodies naturally make the compound, which is used to supply energy to our muscles. It is produced in the liver, pancreas, and kidneys, and is transported to the body's muscles through the bloodstream. Once it reaches the muscles, it is converted into phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate). This high-powered metabolite is used to regenerate the muscles' ultimate energy source, ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
Unlike steroids or drugs, creatine is 100% natural and occurs naturally in many foods; therefore, it can never be banned from any sports or international competitions (unless they banned eating meat). Many foods especially herring, salmon, tuna, and beef contain some creatine. However, the very best source of creatine by far is creatine monohydrate because it contains more creatine per weight of material than any other source. sells only high quality 99.9% pure pharmaceutical-grade creatine monohydrate.

Nitric Oxide Supplements

1. What is it and where does it come from?
Nitric Oxide is a free form gas that is produced in the body and is used by the body to communicate with other cells in the body. To produce this gas, enzymes in the body break down the amino acid Arginine.

Nitric Oxide is a molecule consisting of one atom of nitrogen and one atom of oxygen. The production of Nitric Oxide occurs when the amino acid L-arginine is converted into L-citruline through an enzyme group known as Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS). The chemical process of conversion is shown in figure 1.


Protein Supplements...

High protein diets, like Atkins Diet and South Beach, continue to gain in popularity among many dieters. Some athletes even use these diets and find they lose weight. Depending upon the type of athlete you are and what sort of sport you play, you might want to question the role of the high protein eating plan. Athletes should realize that much of the weight lost on these diets is a result of a decrease in total calories and the water loss that occurs with muscle glycogen depletion. If you perform high intensity or endurance training you probably know that glycogen depletion is one of the reasons athletes 'bonk' or 'hit the wall' in endurance competition. Without enough easy to access energy, in the form of glycogen, we simply run out of fuel.
