A page from Not Normal?, analyzing 21 performances on L’Alpe d’Huez

“Not Normal.” It’s what Lance Armstrong supposedly said about his rivals who were turning in performances beyond the realm of natural human possibility. Doing things that just weren’t natural.
Now, it’s the name of a new digital publication that takes aim at 21 of the sport’s top riders from different eras, and analyzes performances, in watts generated up climbs at the end of long days within stage races.
Not Normal? An insight into doping and the 21 biggest riders from LeMond to Armstrong to Evans examines riders both old (Bernard Hinault) and new (Chris Froome, Bradley Wiggins), and labels performances across an index of suspicion versus believability.
It’s the result of years of research by its editor, Antoine Vayer, a French journalist and a Festina trainer from 1995 to 1998 who has written for French dailies Le Monde, Libération, and l’Humanité.
In 1999, Vayer created AlternatiV, an independent organization aimed at helping athletes who either chose not to dope, or hoped to quit using PEDs. Last year, he joined the action group Change Cycling Now.
