Sharing his expertise in the day's opening session "Winning against the odds. How Lance Armstrong redefined cycling", Bruyneel will tell the story of how he connected with a young Texan named Lance Armstrong on the roads of Europe and, at the age of 34, became Sports Director for Lance's American team, forming a partnership that helped Armstrong into a new era of unprecedented cycling success.

As a team they developed unique training regimes that involved winter sessions in the Alps and Pyrenees and wind tunnel training to improve his positioning. Advancements in Armstrong's pedalling cadence and investment in new bike technologies were also used to help save fractions of seconds, and to improve performance and technique during races. With Armstrong crediting much of his success to Bruyneel, together they redefined the approach to cycling and created history on their way to winning a record seven Tour de France races.

Bruyneel will provide exclusive insights into his tactical intelligence, gift for preparation and his general approach to talent management, team structure and logistics that have ensured his team have continued to function as a high performing unit that are still winning Grand tours and races around the world. In a session that promises to touch on the physiological and psychological aspects of performance, this is a must attend session for all coaches working at the highest level.
