danielson at 130 lbs!!!

he wrote that he lost some weight for the giro and is currently 59 kilos! how tall is he?

i always assumed he was around 5'9"ish. that's feather weight if he's that tall.

Wow. That could make a huge difference on stage 17 with sections of 24% grade.

To compare, note that Salovdelli is 5' 11" and weighs 158.

Careful, lighter is not always better. Heavier riders also have higher muscle mass.

If you can put out 370 watts for an hour, 1400 for 10 seconds, 250 for 6 hours, handle a bike well, recover quickly and do this most every day for 300 days, yes.

It's all about power to weight ratio on the climbs.

I'm 5'9" & 138. I could still lose a couple more pounds.

I got the last three, but I don't know about the first three.

I find it a lot easier to ride and run at 5'11" and 143 lbs than 5'11" and 235, this may just be my own findings though, not uci verified

I'm 6'2'' and at my all time high of 164 pounds right now. To have the same weight:height ratio as danielson I'd have to be at 140...

When I raced on my feet I was 135. I also had the weakest legs of any man not in a wheelchair.

POWER:weight. I bet I could climb a lot faster at 150 then if I got down to 135 again.

Did someone say pie?

3-4 c. fresh mulberries
1 c. sugar
3 tbsp. tapioca
1 1/2 tbsp. real lemon juice
2 c. cherries (opt.)

Place in a mixing bowl with 1 cup sugar and stir occasionally to make a juice. After juice has formed, add 3 tablespoons tapioca and let stand 20 minutes. Then add 1 1/2 tablespoons real lemon juice. Place in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cool 10 minutes, then pour in pie shell. Serve with whipped cream.

To make cherry/mulberry pie follow above instructions using 1/2 cherries, 1/2 mulberries and more sugar.

CRUST (recipe makes one double crust):
2 1/2 cups white flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup cold butter, broken into small pieces
5 tbsp. cold vegetable shortening
8 tbsp. ice water

Measure the flour, sugar and salt togetherl. Stir to combine.
Add the chilled butter pieces and shortening to the bowl. Cut them in with a pastry cutter or knife. Don't over mix them.
Add the ice water. Mix until the dough holds together (add a bit more water, if necessary).
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface, knead it together, then divide in half.
Flatten each half into a disk, wrap in saran wrap and chill for at least half an hour.
Roll out one of the disks on a lightly floured surface until you have a circle that's about 12 inches in diameter.
Put the circle in a 9" pie plate, trimming any extra dough from the edges with a sharp knife (parents only). Return it to the refrigerator until you are ready to make the pie.
Add filling (see below)
Roll out the second ball of dough and cover top. Use a fork or your fingers to pinch the edges together. cut a couple slits in the top.

FILLING
1/3 to 2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
8 medium sized apples (a medium apple = about 1 cup)
2 tablespoons margarine

Heat oven to 425 degrees.
Peel, core and slice the apples. Try to keep the size of the slices even.
Mix sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt in large bowl.
Stir in apples.
Pour into pastry-lined pie plate.
Dot with margarine.
Cover with top crust and seal the edges. Cut slits in the top.
OPTIONAL: Cover edge with 3-inch strip of aluminum foil to prevent too much browning. Remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.

Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust.

If you can see your food digesting and your organs moving around..... chances are you may have a problem.

What is really weird is seeing him Rasmussen next to his wife. She isn't a big girl, but looks huge compared to him....

Yeah, it's strange. I eat a lot and can't go anywhere above 155. I'm only 25 so I'm sure that will change in time.
