It is a sign of just how good an athlete Lance Armstrong is that he broke the course record in Honu despite the toughest conditions ever experienced at the event.

While he might have made it look relatively easy, the seven-time Tour de France champion was quick to point out just how hard he had to work for the win in Hawai’i:
“It was harder than I expected,” he said in an interview after the race. “It was harder than I went in Florida. I can’t compare it to the other races, because they were such suffer-fests with the nutrition malfunctions, but it was hard. The winds on the bike were one thing, but the run was painful with the ups and downs and the different surfaces.”
