At the end of last season, Team OUCH’s parent company Momentum Sports Group (MSG) and Landis agreed to terminate their two-year contract (2009-2010).

Typical capacity: approaching 3000mAh
Cell voltage: approaching 1.2V
Watt hours per kilogram = capacity x voltage / weight
=3Ah x 1.2V / .025kg
Ya, it's crazy eh?
"I do feel vindicated," LeMond said Wednesday. "This has been going on so long, you get used to people thinking there are ulterior motives and jealousy. But that's really just the spin that Armstrong has put on it."
