Plan B: " No one else could have done what he did. Unfortunately that statement cuts both ways."
Yes it does cut both ways.
But in terms of tour wins, I think Indurain would have gone on to win at least six tours if he didn't have his first baby when he did. My wife and I were both huge Indurain fans, and I remember how happy she was when she heard he had a baby. But I said to her at the time, yes but it means he won't win the tour this year. His personality was such that he wouldn't neglect his marriage or his kid.
Like Lance he also totally dominated but unlike Lance was very generous to everyone around him and was universally loved by everyone (except those who thought he made the tour boring. His personality was the complete opposite of Lance's, yet no one could touch him. Of course I don't think for a second that he could have won any tours without EPO, but he did dominate his era without being the least bit of a jerk.
Realized Indu must have doped a long long time ago but I still feel a bit sad about it. Guess that how a lot of Lance fans feel.
