How is it possible that Lance Armstrong has a resting heart rate of 32-34 bpm but his resting cardiac output is about the same as an untrained person who has a resting heart rate of 70 bpm?

His heart is stronger as well as being significantly larger. Per pump (stroke, beat), his trained heart can output a greater volume of blood than an untrained person (let's called the untrained person Joe Normal). So at rest, both Armstrong and Joe need to move the same volume of blood around per minute to keep everything oxygenated. Each beat of Armstrong's heart is going to move twice as much blood as a beat from Joe's. As a result, Armstrong's heart only needs to beat half as often to keep things oxygenated. How did this happen? Lots and lots of cardiovascular training. As the heart gets trained, it gets stronger and larger - it is a muscle, just like your biceps grow after multiple bicep curls in the gym. When Lance is sprinting as fast as he can, his heart is not pumping much more often than when a non-athlete is sprinting - but it's pumping out more blood per beat so he can go further and faster since his muscles can remain better oxygenation, produce less lactic acid and take longer to fatigue.

What is Lance Armstrong's average pedaling speed?

During flat time trials Lance maintains a cadence of 100-115 rpm. He is using a lower gear than most other cyclists, but is pedaling faster than them. Rather than using leg power and sheer muscle strength (as did all the early competitive cyclists throughout the 1900s up until the time of Miguel "Big Mig" Indurain), Armstrong relies on superior cardio fitness to carry him through the mountains. Nowadays, the only cyclists who mash huge gears are the ones with very muscular legs, Jan Ullrich being a prime example.

Lances climbing cadence is different however around 80-85rpm, but up to 100rpm when attacking on a long solo breakaway when the gradient lessens during a climbing attack.

One reason why Jan and Lance were so exciting to watch together: they had such different styles-and so lance 'looked' faster than yan or any climbers, though he was only going marginally quicker than them...
