Bicycling Magazine has published a story written by Chris Carmichael titled “Respect Your Elders: Some cyclists get faster as they age. Here’s why.”

Excerpt: “Older athletes tend to be more open to focusing on new recovery tools like compression technology. Many people noticed that Armstrong wore compression socks between Tour de France stages. In the winter I also had him wear pneumatic compression boots. There’s still a lot of research to be done here, but the idea is that compression improves recovery by helping to circulate blood and lymph fluids through tired muscles.”
