If the frogs didn't protest too much, we could just call it the Tour de Lance...

Agreed. He may be a great athlete, but not as the biggest stud. But I guess the qualities that make a person a "stud" are different. Top of my "studs" lists would be Armstrong for his determiniation, staying on top of his game for so long especially during the early years fighting cancer, and his endurance. Peyton Manning for his knowledge of the game and his ability to seemingly change the game to suit his purposes, not the other way around. Michael Jordan...the basketball years...no need to say more on this. Tiger Woods also has the makes of being a stud. I'd say he's 3/4 the way there.
It's definitely true of Lance, but Pete Sampras? Why would he be considered a top endurance athlete?

Sampras is one of those rare birds who was able to do it year after year after year. I think it puts him in a very elite class. He's also the top tennis money earner of all time.
