Yea, Merckx was no paragon of virtue, that's for sure, but from everything I've heard about him he left the killer attitude on the bike and didn't go out of his way to destroy lives. - SvenHoekEddie Merckx doesn't resonate with me the way Greg LeMond does (or the way Armstrong once did). I was too into tennis and skiing back then to pay much attention to the Merckx era. But you hit the nail on the head regarding the difference in character. Fearsome competitors are always a breed apart, but some leave their ferociousness behind when they exit the field of play. Merckx comes across as that sort.Armstrong, in light of all the evidence that has come to light, seems downright vile.
