    3 guys over 80 pro-tour race days, which means they each had well in excess of 100 race days, since most pros do a lot more non-pro-tour dates.

    I remember when it was the norm to race 120+ days a year. What happened, did we get soft? Or did the speeds get too high and thus require more recovery for our million dollar bodies?

    Lance (post-cancer) was racing like 50-60 days a year and only 21 of them seriously. That's a lot of boring training.
